Abstract

Pythagoras theorem has been a perennially interesting topic among mathematicians – both young and old. In this investigation, we will create a spiral of sequential square roots using Pythagoras theorem and will explore several related exciting patterns and relationships. Most of these investigation questions can be taken up by students in middle school and high school alike, who have been introduced to the theorem.
