Introduction

As previously noted, the Pythagorean Theorem is one of the fundamental theorems of Geometry.  On this webquest you will learn about the theorem, Pythagoras, the creator of the theorem, and how he came up with it.  You will also learn the different parts to a right triangle and the formula that makes up the Pythagorean Theorem.  After learning this information, you will then solve problems using the Pythagorean Theorem.  Finally, you will develop a problem that you would experience in everyday life in which you can use the Pythagorean Theorem to come up with an answer.
