Draper Reinvigorating Theorem

There is not enough enthusiasm for math in the US schools. Without enthusiasm for math, science and entrepreneurship are at risk. So, In the spirit of reinvigorating the math world, and proving there is always something new out there, I have invented a new theorem.

Please show it to all the math teachers you know.

Draper Reinvigorating Theorem:

The sum of the cubes of a sequence of integers, 1 to n, equals the square of the sum of those integers. Totally freaky. 1+8+27=(1+2+3)^2 or 1+8+27+64=(1+2+3+4)^2. Try it with 5,6,7...It works.

Feel free to comment, add your own theorems, etc.
