        Hiking Mt. Majestic: The Pythagorean Theorem to the Rescue

        Learn how the Pythagorean theorem can help you calculate the distance of a hike through the mountains. This video focuses on breaking down an irregular figure into a series of right triangles so you can calculate the actual distance of the hike, then use similar steps to calculate the distance of the hike at Perilous Peak to compare the two hiking adventures.

        This media gallery was submitted through the Innovation Math Challenge, a contest open to professional and nonprofessional producers and is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School collection.
