SWLCA-real-life-mathEighth grade students at Southwest Louisiana Charter Academy were very happy to show real-life examples of mathematics. Students used teamwork skills as they formed right angles to represent the hypotenuse of a triangle. One group of students demonstrated the Pythagorean Theorem using their bodies for the sides of a right triangle. Students were amazed to discover that this was one of the earliest theorems known to ancient civilization.
