HMH Pythag Part 4. Leonardo da Vinci's Pythagoras Proof

Happy Maths Hour Pythagoras Proofs 4. Leonardo da Vinci's Pythagoras Proof Making Understanding Pythagoras Possible - Proofs, Puzzles and Fun

Part 4 in a series on Pythagoras

Join us for an hour de-mystifying Pythagoras. Learn about Pythagoras Proofs without words

This is the fourth in a series of live Happy Maths Hour conversations about the history, and the many different proofs and the applications of Pythagoras Theorem. It is perhaps the most famous statement in mathematics and, some would say, one of the most beautiful equations.

You will meet jig-saw puzzles that lead to proofs of the theorem and maybe gain insights that will lead you to see geometry in new ways.

There is evidence that the theorem was known, used in surveying and building, and even proven by Babylonian mathematicians over 1000 years before Pythagoras was born.
