Subject: Use tangrams in the proof of the Pythagorean Theorem
I used the 7 Tangram pieces as an activity to prove the Pythagorean Theorem. I asked students to see how many different squares can be made out of the 7 pieces and if they could make one large square using the 7 pieces. The next day I took my students to the computer lab and had a power point presentation about Pythagoras, the Pythagorean Theorem and its proof using the 7 pieces.
