### Pythagoras

Thursday, February 26, 2009
Mr. Harbeck fell and he hurt his head somehow... and he needs our help to make him remember the thing he forgot...

He found his backpack and this is what he found...

This is a picture of Pythagoras. He is also known as the father of math. He discovered

that the earth goes around the sun. He found a cure for when people is sick and that is to play music. He is a Vegan. He also found the circumference of the earth. He is the one who came up with the Pythagorean theorem.

The next thing he found was a triangle... R.A.T

This is a Right Angle Triangle also known as the R.A.T. The side that makes 90 degree is called the legs. That you have to lable a and b. The hypotenuse is the C, and is the longest side of the triangle. It is always across from the little square inside the triangle.

This is What i mean....

Next is the Square.....

This is a square, all the sides are equal. There are four 90 degree angles in this shape, which equals up to 360 degrees all together. The sqaure is made up of 2 right angle triangles and those black lines on each of the side mean that it is a triangle. if it wasn't there i would mean that it is a sqaure.

Next is the Pythagorean Theorem....
