Project MATHEMATICS!, California Institute of Technology  
A videotapeandworkbook module that explores a basic topic in high school mathematics in ways that cannot be done at the chalkboard or in a textbook. Several animated proofs of the Pythagorean theorem are presented, with applications to reallife problems and to Pythagorean triples. The theorem is extended to 3space, but does not hold for spherical triangles.
