### Pythagoras !

Wednesday, February 25, 2009
This week, we were assigned to make a blog post about the Pythagoras Theorum and Pythagoras himself. Plus define a few words.

Pythagoras was one of the most greatest genuises ever lived. He was an uber smart mathmatician and philosopher. Pythagoras was from Greek, but we are not 100% sure that Pythagoras actually existed because he made no records.

Legs
The legs are the shorter parts of a triangle. The legs create the right angle of the triangle.

Hypotenuse
Hypotenuse is the longest side of a right triangle, it is the opposite side of the right angle.

R.A.T
R.A.T is just short for Right Angle Triangle.

Greek
A person born or living in ancient or modern Greek.

Theorem
A theory that can be proved.

The Pythagoras Theorem
Pythagoras created the Pythagoras Theorem. It is the sum of the areas of the 2 squares on the legs which is a and b, equals the area of the square on the hypotenuse(c).

Then we have to explain some artifacts that Mr.Harbeck posted for us. The first article is the picture above this. The picture represents the Pythagoras Theorem. The definition for it is above the picture.

This is the 2nd article.

This is a Right Triangle. It has a 90 degree angle, and all together it has 180 degrees.This triangle is also known for a R.A.T.How do you know when it's a right angle ? Well, if it has a little square in the corner, then it means it is a 90 degree angle.

(no picture because everytime i clicked the picture icon, it would freeze.)

Well, the picture is sopposed to be a simple square. A square has 4 right angles which is 90 degrees each, and all together it would equal 360.

(no picture because everytime I clicked
the picture icon ..it would FREEZE)

(I could not get the rest of the post done because the computer at home was super slow:( )

Our next assignment was to make a video on how to solve the problem's on the videos.

This is the video I made with Kim C. and Courtney.
