Megan's Scribe Post

Today in class we continued with our new unit The pythagorean Theorem. We had to find out the Pythagorean Triple using only up to 5 on our perfect square chart. The pythagorean triple is 3,4 and 5.

(Ex. 32(squared) + 42 = 52. = 9 + 16 = 25. A2 + B2 = C2. The first, second, and third numbers show A2, B2 and C2. (squared).
32 or 9 = A,
42 or 16 = B2,
and 52 or 25 = C2

Then later during class we showed the pythagorean triple in 3 pictures for better understanding.

This is called Proof #1






1) This picture shows that the pythagorean triple helps show A2 + B2 = C2.










2) Shows that 32 + 42 = 52 using...well, squares to show that both A and B makes C.


3) The shaded parts around the 42 shows that 52 was made by adding 32 to 42.
Well, thats it!!! XD (Feel like using red now!)

Good Job Megan! I like how you used different colours in the pictures, it helps demonstrate what you are trying to explain.
