 The Math Geek Equestrian- This blog is for Miss Jovanovich's algebra and geometry classes to share ideas, ask questions, and reflect on what skills and topics we are studying. If we are lucky, we might even get a chance to connect with other students studying the same stuff.

Happy Cinco de Mayo Everyone!!
I hope you all had a great day yesterday celebrating Cinco de Mayo! I went to the school dance that was dedicated to it! It was so much fun!
This week we were asked to talk about the Pythagorean Theorem. Everyone has heard of it, not many know the real name, but it is A^2 + B^2 = C^2.
^2 means squared by the way. The definition for the theorem is: "In any right triangle, the area of the square whose side is the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the areas of the squares whose sides are the two legs (the two sides that meet at a right angle)."
Wow, that's long. Basically it is a way to find the lengths of the sides of a right triangle. A and B are the legs, and C is the hypotenuse. Try some problems out!
Have fun!
Til next week! Grace
