Engage students to watch a couple of short videos to kick start a discussion about Pythagorean Theorem and how it applies to solving for right-angle triangle lengths. Ask students to pay attention to the videos so that they know what a hypotenuse and legs of a right-angle triangle is as it applies to Pythagorean Theorem.
