Converse of the Pythagorean Theorem We have been learning the Pythagorean theorem which states that if we have a right triangle, then a2 + b2 = c2. Today we will study the reverse – if a2 + b2 = c2, do we have a right triangle? • What is the difference between these two statements? • When we reverse statements, the reverse is called the converse of the original statement. 1. All dogs are animals. 2. All oceans are bodies of water. 3. All carrots are vegetables. 4. When it snows it is cold. 5. If you are at least 16 years old, then you can get a drivers license. (in Tennessee) The converse of the Pythagorean theorem states that… … If a2 + b2 = c2 then the side lengths will make a right triangle. http://www.nsf.gov/news/special_reports/footb all/pythagorean.jsp Exit Ticket Roger Goodell is the commissioner of the NFL (National Football League). A defensive player approached him to ask about the angle of pursuit. The player wanted to understand why he could run just as fast as the receiver (who has the ball) but not reach the receiver in time to tackle him before he scored a touchdown. Mr. Goodell has turned the question over to you. Let’s say the receiver catches the ball on the 30 yard line (30 yards until he scores a touchdown). The defensive player is also on the 30 yard line but 10 yards away from the receiver. How far will the defensive player have to run to tackle the receiver just before he scores a touchdown? Warm Up Write a letter to someone explaining how to tell if you are looking for a missing leg or the missing hypotenuse. What difference does this make in your calculations? Draw and label pictures to aid your explanations. Yesterday’s Exit Ticket Roger Goodell is the commissioner of the NFL (National Football League).
