Carpenter's right triangle

The students constructed a right triangle using their choice of Pythagorean triples. Then they cut it out. In pairs, they went around the school checking if the walls are aligned at right angles. They also checked if the floor and wall were aligned right all across. 
Then they very politely presented their results to the principal, informing her where all the designing of the building is not 'mathematically accurate'!
