Pythagoras and Cousins: Connections Between Geometry and Algebra

Participants will explore connections between geometry and algebra through investigations of the Pythagorean Theorem and related results.  They will work on concrete problems that encourage them to search for patterns and to create and confirm/disprove conjectures about more general situations. There will be opportunities to share solutions and make connections to the precollege curriculum.
