Storyboard Text

  • I can't figure out how my watch works. I know it connects to a satellite.
  • I'll tell you. It uses the power of the Pythagorean Theorem.
  • The watch sends your starting location to the satellite, then it sends your end location.
  • That's cool. But I still don't understand how it tracks my distance.
  • The Pythagorean Theorem says that a2+b2=c2.
  • 82+72=103. The answer is √103.
  • But that's just an example. You were really about 60 miles away, and you ended up 80 miles away.
  • Thanks! Well, I better keep running. I wonder how far I've gone.
