Storyboard Text

• I'm tired. Let me see what time it is.
• Oh no! I'm late for work as always!﻿
• ﻿I don't have time for that. I need to figure out how to get to work the fastest way.
• ﻿What's the Pythagorean Theorem?
• B﻿
• A﻿
• C﻿
• It is a method of finding out a side of a triangle. The longest side is named C, and the other two sides are named A and B.
• What a surprise! You're on time as always.
• ﻿Since you're super late this time, you should try using the Pythagorean Theorem.
• What is the fastest way to get to work?
• 5²﻿+12²﻿=c²﻿ 25+144=c²﻿ c²﻿=169 The square root of 169 is 13. Which means it takes 13 miles to go to work directly.
• If a²﻿+b²﻿=c²﻿, then I can plug in the distances, and find out the shorter distance.
• If I take the train station everyday to work, which is 5 miles away, then go to work which is 14 miles away, I can find out the fastest way possible using the Pythagorean Theorem.
• ﻿14 miles
• Train Station﻿
• ﻿Work
• 5 miles﻿
• ?﻿
• Home﻿
• You didn't even let me answer yes or no! And I don't know if that's something you should be proud of, but whatever.
• Hey bus driver, wanna hear a cool story? I was late to work today, so I used the Pythagorean Theorem to figure out the fastest way to get to work.
• One of your coworkers gave this to you. He said you will need it for work today, and it will help solve your bring late to work problem.﻿
