This PowerPoint presentation is a simple way to teach the Pythagorean Theorem. After a brief introduction of Pythagorus himself, there are slides that walk through the theorem step-by-step mathematically and visually. The learners will understand why the theorem involves squares and square roots by observing the pictures provided. The students will be able to find the distance of a missing side of a right triangle, including the hypotenuse. Sample problems are also included in this presentation.
