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!
