  3. This is so exciting! I am a math teacher at the high school level and this was a REAL-WORLD example of using the measurements of a 45-45-90 triangle!!!!! AWESOME. Can’t wait to use it in my classroom. The hypotenuse of a 45-45-90 triangle is the length of the side times the square root of 2 (which is 1.41). Love it.
