1. Pythagoras By; Amber Laffoon. (: http://space.about.com/od/astronomyhistory/ig/Pythagoras-Pictures-Gallery/Pythagoras-the-Astronomer.htm

2. His Life! • His full name was Pythagoras. He was born in Samos Island, 570 b.c. He Metempsychosis. (believed in reincarnation.) Growing up math was his most strongest skill. When he had gotten older he contributed his life to math. At the age of 18 he left and moved to Miletus. He died at the age of 99 in 495 BC, Metapontum.

3. Pythagorean theorem. • “Given a right triangle ( a triangle with a right (or 90 degree) angle),the square of the length of the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the squares of the lengths of the two other sides.The normal way of seeing this is...A^2 + B^2 = C^2.A triangle with sides of length 3ft, 4ft and 5ft is a right triangle because3^2 + 4^2 = 5^2(9 + 16 = 25)It is used in a great many ways. You can measure the sides, and prove a triangle is a right triangle, or you can use the fact that a triangle is a right triangle to calculate one of the sides.”

4. Contribution to math! • He contributed to philosophy and religious teachings in the late 6th BC. He admired math and came up with of what we know as the Pythagorean theorem.

5. Other facts! • He believed that his friend had come back to life, as a dog. He said he talked to him through a dogs bark. He starved himself to death and that’s how he died.
