So in Algebra class we looked over the Wheel of Theodorus and began discussing it before making a wheel of our own. It was one of the few things I enjoyed, especially when we had to fill in the formula to find the hypotenuse. Have any of you ever made a wheel or read about it or anything? What were your thoughts?

I've heard of it (as a spiral), but never did anything with it. :)

It's not the most useful, but it's interesting, so I understand that.
