[IAEP] TED - Alan Kay - Example(8:44)

I don't think I understand completely. In that project I was just using Etoys as a "super Powerpoint" to show the proof of the Pythagorean Theorem by demonstration.

This can be done on paper, or even better with cardboard or wood shapes arranged by hand (which is the way we get children to find the proof).

Best wishes,

Hello everybody,

I am trying to simulate the example  "Or This A2+b2=c2" used by AK en the TED conference (8:44) but unfortunelly I am not arriving to the expected results. Does anybody know if the etoy project (I just need the example: A2+b2=c2, not the complete presentation)  is available in the web?
