by Annie Lowe

There is only one triangle on this sheet and it is not a right triangle. This helps the students understand that the Pythagorean Theorem only works with right triangles and allows for discussion on why they think this is true.

This is the same sheet as Triangles page 1, but with the squares already drawn off of the triangles. This is a great sheet to give your special education students.
