Semester A Unit 4 Lesson 5:
Cool Crafts Portfolio Template

Choose a room you would like to decorate:
_My bedroom________________________________

Measure the length of one wall in inches: _ 12 feet: 144 inches__________________________

2. Choose a size of paper to use.
*I recommend just using a standard 8.5 inch by 11 inch piece of paper. Then fold it diagonally and cut it to make a square.

*Once you cut off the bottom portion of the rectangular, the sides of the square will each be 8.5 inches. If you would like, you can cut 0.5 inch off the top of the square and 0.5 off the right side of the square to make it 8 inches by 8 inches. That is optional.

3. Cut the square in half along the diagonal to form two paper triangles. These will be your pennant flags.

4. Measure the diagonal of the triangle: ____________________________________
Use the Pythagorean Theorem ( a^2+b^2=c^2) to determine the length of the diagonal (hypotenuse):
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

5. Divide the actual length of the room (measurement from Step 1), by the length of the hypotenuse:
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
*That is how many triangles you will need to create your “string of pennant flags”.
How many flags will you need to cover the entire length of the wall? ___________

Analyze It Questions:
Why might your measurement of the diagonal’s length be different than the length you found using the Pythagorean Theorem?

Why do you have to use estimation to find the number of triangles you need for the string?

5. The answer to the analyze it question is that the Pythagorean Theorem is very precise. But the ruler is not very precise and is basically an estimate of the length of the side.

11. Why can't we learn to respect each other. We all are humans we all make mistakes and we all need help. We were made to help each other and help people up when they are down. We are NOT suppose to treat people like trash. The mean something. We may not think of it now, but how will you feel if 30 years from now you find out you cause someone to commit suicide because you always made them feel worthless? I know all who read this will make fun of me or call me annoying, but it is the truth, nothing but the truth. You don't know the next person you call could be the next Albert Einstein, or the person you call ugly could be the next Miss America, or hottest Man Alive, you don't know he could be the next person you have a poster of him/her all over your bedroom. You never know.........

18. @HI
I already finished this project, and I don't know if you are already done with it, but I can answer it in case someone else reads this 🤷
Why is your measurement of the diagonal's length different than the length you found using the Pythagorean Theorem?

In the "Try it" part of the portfolio, it asks you to measure the length of your diagonal and then use Pythagorean Theorem. Basically, use a tool like a ruler to measure the diagonal first, and after finding that measurement, use Pythagorean Theorem.
Now think, is a ruler always accurate? Yes, it can be close to the real answer, but is it always accurate? Now think of the Pythagorean Theorem. Math is made to be accurate down to the smallest decimal.
So, why is the measurement you made with a ruler, different from the calculation you made with math?
