Animated roadmap of Euclid's proof of Pythagoras
Euclid's proof of Pythagoras theorem may seem long and tedious at school level. And students often feel lost. In this video I have animated the main steps, pointing out there are two triangles and each undergoes deformation, rotation and deformation. These are shown as different triangles in the written proof. HOW TO USE THIS? Watch this to get the high level view of the key concepts. They compare with the written proof. Then try to flesh out the details yourself. Wish you the best!
