- Constuct your Pythagorean snail using the steps on the workskeet. - Fill in the table with the triangle side lengths as you go. - After constucted, try to line up the spiral equations for the inner and outter spirals by adjusting the sliders. - Compare your values with others in the class. - Complete the remaining questions on the worksheet.
When the spiral is finished and you are pleased with the way it looks, it is time to pull out those coloring tools. Print out your Pythagorean snail (without the added spiral lines or axes), and make a fancy design, or do something creative and make, for example, a baby carriage out of it.
