Great and well done; could also maybe extend it to Pythagorean triples 3:4:5, 5:12:13 etc and if there are any more! Also could mention the relationship to surds, finally some applied problems height of towers etc. But for what it is it is a nice exercise as an introduction.

This is fantastic!! Currently attempting to help tutor my brother through his GCSE maths exam and this selection of exercises has increased his understanding of Pythagoras Theorem nicely! Thank you so much!

A really nice selection of worksheets on Pythagoras Theorem, stepped in difficulty with the last task asking pupils to work out whether the triangles are right-angled when they are provided with the length of all three sides. The only thing missing are questions on finding a missing side other than the hypotenuse which would be the next step in testing their understanding. A very nice resource, thank you for sharing.
