What is it?

This is an image of “Pythagorean Theorem” and the “Proof of the theorem”. I think it is one of the most famous theorems in mathematics.

Why did I build it?

I came up with this idea when I was talking with my son about the pyramid. Ancient people were using this theorem to get the right angle of the pyramid. I made this image with Lego Blocks to prove the theorem.

Why do I believe this would make a great LEGO set?

It would be a great educational tool for teachers and students in junior high school.

<Explanation>

When there is a right angle in a triangle, we can use the Pythagorean theorem.

The equation is below.

a^2 + b^2 = c^2

note) a^2 means “a” squared

Picture 1 shows the image of the Pythagorean equation.

Red square + Yellow square = Blue square

Picture 2-10 show how Red and Yellow squares are the same size of Blue square.

Picture 11 is the proof of the equation.

I hope you will like it!!

Thank you!!
