Product Description
This is a hands on geometric proof of the Pythagorean Theorem. Students arrange four congruent right triangles two different ways on a large square to show that the sum of the areas of the squares formed by the legs equals the area of the square formed by the hypotenuse. The only required materials besides the handout are scissors for each student or team. Rulers are not required because the template already includes unit markings.
