A few weeks ago I posted some of my YouTube favorites for the Pythagorean Theorem which included raps, songs and proof demonstartions. http://a4a.learnport.org/forum/topics/pyagorean-thm-on-youtube-proo...  I even posted a YouTube origami proof! http://a4a.learnport.org/video/origami-proof-of-the-pythagorean-the... 

Now I have a collection of some of my favorite computer java applets that allow hands-on explorations of proving this famous theorem a multiude of ways. Since the document refers frequently to the Project PRIME worksheet on proofs (my revised version of it), I'm including that also. It is really interesting the connections among the various proofs. Some seem to start out very similarly, but really diverge along different paths.
