This worksheet illustrates pythagoras' theorem by showing the areas of each side squared, and then showing that the areas are equal.
Move the slider on by 1 step and read the explanations which correspond to the diagram.
Count the number of boxes in the squares of each side.

You can see that the squared area of the hypotenuse covers the same number of boxes as the squared area of both the other sides added up.
