The Pythagorean Theorem: Geometry’s Most Elegant Theorem

This video lesson about the Pythagorean Theorem gives your students hands-on practice on working out the proof of this basic theorem of geometry. The teacher’s guide includes the materials necessary for doing the activities that are presented in the video. The presenter makes a great point that “proving” a theorem doesn’t always translate into being able to use it, so she offers real world applications for students to use. Also included are downloads of the student worksheet and a Pythagorean Theorem puzzle.
