I did this last class with the classic Pythagorean Thm investigation with a 3 by 4 right triangle. A number of the students knew the theorem from learning it in advance, but they did benefit in that they could see where the a^2+b^2=c^2 came from. It’s always so much more valuable to let students see how things work for themselves and make their own connections.
