Good morning class today we will be talking about the Pythagoras theorem. The theorem was formulated by the Greek mathematician and philosopher, Pythagoras of Samos. He was born in approximately 570 BC in Samos Greece. He was educated in Tyre, Samos and Miletus (which is present-day Syria, Egypt and Asia Minor). He established his own school in Croton. He died later in Metapontum Italy. He was a vegetarian and didn't eat beans. As you have all researched about Pythagoras, now it is time to discuss amongst yourself.
Pythagoras also contributed a lot to mathematics, for example, he said that the sum of the angles of a triangle is equal to two right angles. The theorem of Pythagora states that a2+ b2= c2 .
He also contributed to the discovery of irrational numbers and also the five regular solids (tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron)
a and b are the short sides of the triangle and c is the hypotenuse (longest side) of the triangle. short side2+ short side2= the longest side2(hypotenuse)
great job students, now what are some of the things that Mr. pythagoras achieved?
Pythagoras was credited for the Pythagorean theorem, it was one of his greatest achievement and he was known as the father of numbers.
pythagoras also made good contributions to philosophy and religious teachings.
you can also find the missing side lengths of squares and rectangles when triangles are pushed together
can you now show me an example of Pythagoras' theorem
