Proving the Pythagorean theorem

Most of us are very familiar with the Pythagorean theorem, so familiar that we just take it for granted, but would you know how to prove it? If you would like to take a look I made a short lesson where I describe a neat proof of the theorem.

It's a hit! Over Borris's head and into left field! That'll score a run - Blue Jays up 3-2!

Btw, in 2008, my grandson's (Tyler) team (Orleans Red Sox)
