Product Description
This math assignment is half geometry and half art. An appropriate lesson for geometry, algebra or pre-algebra. It is a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem without numbers.

Follow this link to a Youtube Video which explains more about how to teach this lesson. May be useful to have the students watch the video

Students start with a large paper square and add lines, labels, and folds on it to make the proof. You may find different versions of this lesson on the net. But it is unlikely you will find anything which puts the math and visual examples together the way I do. It is much easier to understand the proof this way.

It includes 6 Pages:
1) Cover
2) Background and Instructions
3-4) Relates visual examples to the math portion of the theorem
5) The final math portion of the proof.
6) Examples of lines, squares, triangles, needed to create the paper proof
