Discovering Triples

In this assessment, students investigate generating Pythagorean triples and work on discovering patterns that help finding primitive Pythagorean triples (ones that cannot be reduced by a common factor). In the process of exploring this topic, students also learn about the importance of co-primes and their roles in finding those primitive Pythagorean triples. This is a fairly long assessment, which likely requires more than 120 minutes to complete.
