Pythagorean Turkeys at Wallace Middle School
Fri, February 23, 2018
Students at Wallace Middle School show off their mathematical skills to create Pythagorean turkeys. Each student completed a set of feathers, each containing a math problem requiring use of the Pythagorean Theorem for right triangles.
After solving the problems, they had to arrange the feathers in the correct order and attach them for a neat art project. The next day, the students completed a Turkey Trot, where they applied their skills with the Pythagorean Theorem. The students used a coordinate graph and the Pythagorean Theorem to measure distances between two locations on a map. Special thanks to Dr. Chad Wallace for assisting the class with the turkey project. We enjoyed having him in the class.
