An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrates a graphical proof of Pythagoras' Theorem.

It can can be stepped through slowly to allow classroom discussion, or let to run as a movie. Useful for students who like to see things graphically as opposed to symbolically.
Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector. After use in the classroom, student can access it again from any web browser at home or in the library with no login required.
