With over 50 carefully crafted slides that build from the most basic prior knowledge, this presentation, and student exercise, is a great PREQUEL to YOUR LESSON on the Pythagorean Theorem.
This was originally available at my colleagues store: Room 213.
Help your students to truly understand what is meant by "The sum of the squares of the two perpendicular sides is equal to the square of the hypotenuse," and give them a gift that will follow with them through every math and physics course they take ever afterwards!
One of the true cornerstones of modern developments, Pythagoras' discovery has applications in almost every form of math. This visual journey will help your students to see how truly simple, yet brilliant, it is.
Followed by a student exercise that will further reinforce the ideas presented, this is a great way to introduce this powerful theorem.
