Product Description
Engage your students in understanding a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem!

Using scrapbook paper, this presentation will walk students through the process of making a Pythagorean paper puzzle that becomes a visual proof of the famous theorem. Can students rearrange the puzzle pieces to show how it all works? Can they explore the algebra behind the proof?

Each finished product makes a colorful square tile. The tiles can be combined into a bulletin board display that resembles a paper quilt. Voila! Art, design, mathematics, all in one activity!

Included:
1 PowerPoint presentation with teacher notes and a presentation for students.
1 PDF activity recording sheet
