Description:

In this lesson, students use manipulatives to come up with a geometric proof of the Pythagorean Theorem, use the Web and search engines to research the theorem, use scientific calculators to explore Pythagorean Triples (asupn/sup + bsupn/sup = csupn/sup), and get an introduction to Fermat's Last Theorem. The lesson incorporates the videos The Proof and The Theorem of Pythagoras, but some of the activities can be done independently of the videos.
