"The area of the square built upon the hypotenuse of a right triangle is equal to the sum of the areas of the squares upon the remaining sides."
According to the Pythagorean Theorem, the sum of the areas of the two red squares, squares A and B, is equal to the area of the blue square, square C.

How to find the length of the hypotenuse in a right triangle.
A fun and exciting way for kids to get a grasp of the basics of the Pythagorean Theorem before we put it to the test in class.
The next day in class students knowledge will be put the the test in the form of a game. There will be two teams on each side of the class working together to find the answer to the questions. Whichever team successfully writes the answer on the board, will gain homework passes to be used whenever they desire.
