This video is 2 of 5 in part 1 of the video series on rediscovering the Pythagorean theorem. In this video, I explain how I viewed area from a different perspective. This video will not only give a new perspective of area, but will pave the way to understand the proofs in the next 2 videos. It is a journey through brilliance, beauty, and discovery.

I spent about a year investigating the Pythagorean Theorem and learned a lot of cool math concepts. I summarize it in a video series called "A Pythagorean Theorem Story". The series is organized in 2 parts of 5 videos each. Part 1, titled "Following Brilliance" focuses on 3 main proofs of the Theorem. Part 2, titled "Lost and on my own" takes a step back and compares and contrasts the proofs. This was the real fun part as I had no road map to follow. By giving myself permission to be curious, I discovered new things that I had never seen before. The entire series is a journey of discovery and appreciating the beauty of geometry.
