A Pinner said: A visual proof of the Pythagorean Theorem. When I taught this in class, I had the students prove it themselves by cutting out squares on graph paper. They cut out the square of side A and the square of side B, and then they pasted the squares along the hypotenuse. They loved it! - I MUST TRY THIS!!!
Yet by mholtzen I started using the word “Yet” with my students a couple years ago. When a child says, “But I don’t get it,” or “I can’t do this,” which happens often in my land of perfectionists, I add the word, “Yet” to the end of their declaration.
