Christmas morning math and silliness (Math Immersion Month Day 25)

On Christmas morning, my dad and I tried to prove the Pythagorean theorem. Then we gave up and Googled it, but we still didn’t udnerstand any of the proofs! Then we gave up on that too and went to our family Christmas party. All in all, a great day! Happy holidays!
