Carla’s Caterpillar Centimeter Scale

A very intelligent man named Pythagoras found out that if we put three squares together touching corners and that the area of two smaller squares add up to the area of the largest square then the corner opposite the longest side is 90°.

This is called the Pythagorean Theorem. We are going to use this theorem to make the Karla’s Caterpillar. We are going to construct Karla’s Caterpillar, La Oruga de Karla, using 3 scales. Centimeter, Inch, and foot.
