Again, we were up at the boards. I gave them this

**without telling them what they were. I asked them to write what they noticed.**

__list of triples__They had so many different noticings I wanted them to share, on the spot I decided to have them do a gallery walk. In their groups, I asked them to circle the classroom and read each other's remarks. When they got back to their spot. I asked them to share out something they noticed about what someone else wrote. I liked this. One group in the first class noticed the last four. So, in my other two classes, I asked them to notice about the last four as well. Some noticed it added 3, 4, and 5 when you went down the list. Some kids noticed it was 3*7, 4*7, and 5*7, etc.

After this, we did these

**.**

__board problems__And, Google Slide Lesson:

__Pythagorean Theorem__They did well with the regular Pythagorean. No one tripped up when I gave them a hypotenuse instead. We struggled with squaring the binomial - only one group per class got it wrong. We learned from their mistakes.

I finally, we drew a triangle from the triple 5, 12, 13. I asked if it was a right triangle and how they knew that and then I asked what would happen if we changed the 13 to a 14. They quickly grasped that it would now be obtuse and that was our inequalities.

Student work

Back to desks to recap and practice.
