Kids in Danger website is value because it keeps parents as well as caregivers much needed information on recalls of certain things that are not safe for younger children. Kids in Danger website does have information on other website you can go to get more information about the product as well as numbers you can call. This website gave me a lot of information on crib bumpers pads and why they were recall. Due to an incident that happen in 2009 where 6-month-old Aiden died because of a crib bumper pad he rolled into and couldn’t get out. His grandmother who got kids in danger involved on the importance of crib safety and the danger of bumper pads told this story. We use this information by creating brochures or even books with activities that the parents as well as the caregivers to the safety on using products safe. We can even have seminars that would not cost too much for people to attend to give the importance on why certain toys and products have to be recall because more and more children are dying of things that can be prevented. We could also teach parents about how to use some of the product than just using what is read in the book because some of the products do come with instructions but people still could be putting it together wrong. If we educate more and more people on what is happening in the manufactures and why it happen than there would not be so much death. This information is essential to parents and caregivers on this information than there would not be so much deaths and serious injuries. I feel that parents need to know this information because if it were their own child or a family member they would want to know what they could do to prevent this from happening to them. I know we as people need to wake up and see what is going on in our neighborhoods as well as what...

The Pythagorean Theorem is an equation that allows a person to find the length of a side of a right triangle, as long as the length of the other two sides is known. The theorem basically relates the lengths of three sides of any right triangle. The...

Pythagorean Triples
Pythagorean Theorem states that the sum of the areas of the two squares formed along the two small sides of a right angled triangle equals the area of the square formed along the longest.
￼
If a, b, and c are positive integers, they are together called Pythagorean Triples.
The smallest such Pythagorean Triple is 3, 4 and...

...least five more Pythagorean Triples using one of the many formulas available online for doing this.
2. After building your triples, verify each of them in the Pythagorean Theorem equation.
Exercise #4:
The numbers 3, 4, and 5 are called Pythagorean triples since 32+42=52. The numbers 5, 12, and 13 are also Pythagorean triples since 52+122=132. Can you find any other Pythagorean triples? Actually, there is a set...

...The Pythagorean Theorem was one of the earliest theorems known to ancient civilizations. This famous theorem is named for the Greek mathematician and philosopher, Pythagoras. Pythagoras founded the Pythagorean School of Mathematics in Cortona, a Greek seaport in Southern Italy. He is credited with many contributions to mathematics although some of them may have actually been the work of his students.
The Pythagorean Theorem is Pythagoras' most...

...Historical Account:
Pythagoras, the namesake and supposed discoverer of the Pythagorean Theorem, was born on the Greek island of Samos in the early in the late 6th century. Not much is known about his early years of life, however, we do know that Pythagoras traveled through Egypt in the attempt to learn more about mathematics.
Besides his famous theorem, Pythagoras gained fame for founding a group, the Brotherhood of Pythagoreans, which was dedicated solely...

8. The Pythagorean Theorem states that the sum of the squares of the sides of a right triangle is equal to the square of the hypotenuse. For example, if two sides of a right triangle have lengths 3 and 4, then the hypotenuse must have a length of 5. The integers 3, 4, and 5 together form a Pythagorean triple. There is an infinite number of such triples. Given two positive integers, m and n, where m > n, a...

...In mathematics, the Pythagorean theorem — or Pythagoras' theorem — is a relation in Euclidean geometry among the three sides of a right triangle (right-angled triangle). In terms of areas, it states:
In any right-angled triangle, the area of the square whose side is the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the areas of the squares whose sides are the two legs (the two sides that meet at a right angle).
The theorem can be written as an equation...

A Pythagorean triple is a triple of positive integers a, b, and c such that a right triangle exists with legs a, b, and hypotenuse c (Bluman, 2005). A Pythagorean triple is a triple of positive integers (a, b, c) where a2 + b2 = c2. A triple is simply a right triangle whose sides are positive integers. An easy way to generate Pythagorean triples is to...
