Pythagorean Theorem and its Converse
By Boss 'T' Maths
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
With "Boss 'T' Maths Functions Pythagorean Theorem", understanding the Pythagorean theorem has never been so easy!
The first part - I UNDERSTAND! - shows the theorem and its converse with examples and animations.
The second part - I TEST MYSELF! - shows 4 exercises that deal with the theorem and its converse, by applying these on many cases (how to calculate of the hypotenuse of a right angled triangle, a given triangle is-it right angled, which formula to calculate the length of any right angled triangle side, how to locate the points to obtain a given right angled triangle).
Exercises are randomly generated, in other words they are different every time ; so when you run the application, the exercises you have to solve are entirely new !
Finally, the app provides you a score (% and note on 20), so that you can improve yourself and/or challenge your friends.
What's New in Version 2.0
New design iOS7
I would adjust the naming of the triangle to triangle red. The refer to the sides as a,b,c. This will help clear a distinction between the name and the sides. Also, I dislike that the app uses a strange formula instead of the common/most widely used form of a^2+b^2=c^2. Your formula isn't good for classroom or review purposes.
Add a lesson about what is a right triangle. This is a good link to help students start learning about this concept.
This is a really nice app
You have to download it
Confusing for students
Why did this app complicate the simple a sqr + b sqr = c sqr formula? Would have been a great tool if they had left well enough alone.
