Learn Pythagoras' Theorem for GCSE Maths

(Click on image to play.)

I made this game with JavaScript to help students learn about Pythagoras’ Theorem while having fun at the same time.

One use of Pythagoras’ Theorem which people are often unaware of is that it is used to calculate the distance between two points, as shown in the image below.

Playing Treasure Island can make this relationship more obvious, without having to think too much, so when it comes to time to learn how to use Pythagoras’ Theorem more formally, there is some meaningful background experience to give the learning some context.

I hope some of you will try the game and have some fun with it.
