    @OP: Pythagoras' Theorem arguably has more known proofs than any other theorem. Some more visual proofs can be found here: http://jwilson.coe.uga.edu/emt668/em...thagorean.html

    If you're a teacher you might have some fun and use in looking through this site:
    Khan Academy

    I've recently begun tutoring the equivalent of, I think, senior high school students and I've found that just heading over to Sal's videos as a refreshener before each lesson works wonders for my ability to explain the concepts. I think I'll even start trying to use the site directly in my teaching in the near future.
