There are many visual proofs to Pythagoras' theorem. For instance:

clicky for vimeo video[^]

Mind you, simply having the last frame of the video is probably enough for the visual proof.

Also, there is a whole wikipedia article on the subject of the Pythagoras' Theorem, and it includes some visual proofs, though I personally find the one in the video to be the most elegant.

Straw Poll

Have you ever taught anyone to code?
"Teaching" can mean from start to finish, or simply just helping someone learning to code work through a coding issue (like helping with homework or being a support tutor)
And how did it go?
