Here is my original Murrio themed activity and the scavenger hunt I did the day before.
I do not remember any time in my education actually 'comparing' the Pythagorean theorem and distance formula. Prior to this year, I had always taught Algebra though and it had been years since I actually 'did' Geometry. I found this lesson to be really informative and neat how they relate so simply. And yes.... I'm a #mathnerd so that is likely part of it.
These are my quick notes. We just did a couple of examples since they had been practicing the concepts.
And then we celebrated our knowledge with Murrio, Lequigi, Powser, and Princess Maisy...
The students did well and some did find the concept neat and do not remember comparing them before.
And so this was END GAME for Murrio and Friends...
It was a fun filled week of saving the princess, designing new games, hitting ? blocks, and reviewing and applying geometry concepts. It is also the last day I'm giving notes this year! Nothing like going out with the best video game of all time!

And thank you again to my new educational friend, Mr. Lutwyche. I hope that your inspiration causes me more hours of work and my students more engagement.
