GR 8 Unit 2a Looking for Pythagoras A (October 13 - October 28)

In this unit, students investigate the square and cube roots of numbers in the context of finding the distance between points on a coordinate grid. By exploring the relationship between the area of a square drawn on a dot grid and the length of its sides, students are introduced to square roots, and then use that knowledge to analyze the line segment between two points to determine the distance between them. This lays the foundation for the next unit, in which students develop the Pythagorean Theorem.
