I finally tried my hand at a video explanation of a mathematical idea I like. This is part 1 in a short series on the Pythagorean Theorem. It starts where I’ve always felt the story should start: with the question of how to double the square.
What do you think? I’d love feedback, since I’m planning more. What works, what doesn’t?
