Part 1 of Proof of Heron's Formula

Providing the first installment in a series devoted to the exploration of Heron's Formula, this video is a high-level experience that delves into a proof using algebra. It demonstrates a step-by-step process for finding the area of a triangle using Heron's formula, as well as, another method. By using two different methods to solve the same problem, the idea that there may be a multiple ways to calculate a correct answer is reinforced.
