Pythagoras theorem

This resource is provided by our partner Construction Youth Trust.

This session aims to get students thinking about how their maths studies relate to the world of work. It includes a practical ‘setting out’ activity that tackles Pythagoras’ Theorem and the importance of right angles in construction. The activity is supplemented by worksheet-based calculations.

The goal of the session is to bring students’ maths learning to life in the context of site-based construction work and to raise students’ awareness of careers within construction and routes into the industry.
