|Activity: A Dynamic Proof|
|Go to:||http://www.keypress.com/.../DynamicProof.zip (opens a new window)|
Students create a sketch in which a dramatic animation shows how the sum of the areas of two squares is equal to the area of the third square. The link to the activity itself is to a zip file that contains both the activity in pdf format and a sample sketch (designed to help teachers understand how the activity should work).
This is a free sample activity from Pythagoras Plugged In: Proofs and Problems for the Geometer's Sketchpad.
