The Pythagorean theorem can be proven using several different basic figures. This activity introduces student to two such figures with a brief explanation of how to go about the proof. The activity will demonstrate alternate solutions to the problems as well as provide a glimpse into the way early mathematicians reasoned about mathematics. At the end of this activity the students should be able to understand that there are many ways to approach a problem, not to be completely reliant on a given drawing, and to recognize that not all geometric proofs are two column deductive proofs so familiar in traditional textbooks.
