03 02 Pythagorean Theroem Applications Christian Castillo

Project Worksheet 3.02
For this option, you will work individually.
The Pythagorean Theorem can be used in many real-world scenarios.
Part 1
Write your own real-world scenario where the Pythagorean Theorem can be applied to find a
missing piece. You may choose to write a problem that is two- or three-dimensional in nature. Be
sure that you will be able to draw a diagram of your scenario.
Write out your problem and submit it for Part 1. Be sure to end your scenario with a question
Connor, Anna, and Carlos are the best friends. Carlos is having a party and has invited Anna
and Connor. Connor’s house is 3 blocks away from Anna’s house and Anna’s house is 4
blocks away from Carlos’s house. Together the 3 houses make a right triangle. How many
blocks is it from Connor’s house to Carlos’s house?
Part 2
Draw a diagram of the scenario you created in Part 1. You may draw by hand and scan and upload
your drawing or create a computer-generated drawing for submission. Be sure to label all parts and
dimensions of the drawing.
Part 3
Solve the question that you posed in Part 1. Show all of your steps in answering the question.
For this option, you will need to submit all three parts for full credit—your real-world problem and
question, the diagram that you created, and your work solving the problem, showing all steps.
