Did Pythagoras really come up with his Theorem or did he murder to get it? Such is one of life's mysteries which are discussed in this awesome video! I even do some role play to help get the point across.
When I'm not talking about murder (alleged) I am telling you how the rule was discovered and can be used to determine if a triangle has a right angle or not.
I ponder how Pyramids were built and about the formula for Pythagoras' Theorem and the wonderful subject of Pythagorean triples and how they can be found. We also look at similar triangles and how they can be used to find Pythagorean Triples.
I even do a little bit of Michael Jackson! It really doesn't get much better than this.
