Thus, we have proved the Pythagorean Theorem for the puzzle.
The proofs presented here are just a few of the many proofs of the Pythagorean Theorem. The Pythagorean Theorem is a very important concept for students to learn and to understand. It cannot be stressed enough that students need to understand the geometric concepts behind the theorem as well as its algebraic representation. This can be accomplished through the use of technology, manipulatives, and proofs. Students who are taught the Pythagorean Theorem using these methods will see the connections, and thus, benefit greatly.
