A Pinner said: A visual proof of the Pythagorean Theorem. When I taught this in class, I had the students prove it themselves by cutting out squares on graph paper. They cut out the square of side A and the square of side B, and then they pasted the squares along the hypotenuse. They loved it! - I MUST TRY THIS!!!

Love this Pythagorean theorem maze for my Geometry unit! This would be a perfect lesson / activity for an observation day. 8.7C Use the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse to solve problems. G.9B Apply the relationships in special right triangles and the Pythagorean Theorem, including pythagorean triples, to solve problems.

Pythagoras' Theorem Years ago, a man named Pythagoras found an amazing fact about triangles: If the triangle had a right angle (90°) ... ... and you made a square on each of the three sides, then ... ... the biggest square had the exact same area as the other two squares put together!
