Subject: Re: Pythagorean Theorem

The BEST answer is for you to purchase, if you don't already have it, a
software program called The Geometer's Sketchpad from Key Curriculum Press.
It has several creative lessons on the Pythagorean Theorem which are just
wonderful!

See the Math Forum's dynamic geometry area:

http://mathforum.org/dynamic/

Classroom resources:

http://mathforum.org/dynamic/classroom.html

where you can download a demo version to try out the program.

There is also a video your state department should have that was created in
California - there were 3 videos: 1) Pi, 2) Similarity and 3) The Pythagorean
Theorem.

Good luck!
