Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications--Rectangular Prisms

In this video students learn the basics of rectangular prisms, in the context of a New York residential tower: 432 Park Avenue. They learn the properties of rectangular prisms, with and without square bases, and the architectural requirements that influence the use of both types of rectangular prisms.

Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications--Triangular Prisms

In this video students study a real-world application of triangular prisms: The Flat Iron Building in New York City. This building is an ideal example of a real-world prism and also provides a tie-in to right triangle geometry.  This video describes the geometry of the Flat Iron Building, as well as its architecture. It includes animations that demonstrate the key features of triangular prisms.

Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: 3D Geometry

In this program we explore the properties of three-dimensional figures. We do this in the context of two real-world applications. In the first, we look at the three-dimensional structure of Mayan pyramids. These stair-step structures provide a unique opportunity to also explore sequences and series. In the second application we look at the Shanghai Tower as an example of cylindrically shaped structures.

Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: 3D Geometry, Segment 2: Pyramids

Rectangular Prisms. Mayan pyramids are essentially stacks of rectangular prisms. The volume of each successive level is a percentage decrease of its lower neighbor. This introduces the notion of a geometric sequence and series, including an infinite series.

Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: Quadrilaterals

In this program we explore the properties of quadrilaterals. We do this in the context of two real-world applications. In the first, we explore the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright as an application of squares and rectangles; in particular, we look at his Fallingwater house. In the second application we look at a unique parallelogram-shaped building in Spain, known as the Puerta de Europa. It provides an opportunity to explore the properties of parallelograms and trapezoids.

Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: Quadrilaterals, Segment 1: Introduction

Stonehenge is best known as a circular structure. But it’s the post and lintel construction used that is noteworthy, and this type of construction involves quadrilateral shapes. From the familiar door frames of houses to the majestic entryways of ancient temples, post and lintel construction provides a clear introduction to the nature of quadrilaterals. This segment also describes the key concepts developed throughout the program.

Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: Quadrilaterals, Segment 2: Squares and Rectangles

Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural masterpiece Falling Water is also a stunning assembly of quadrilateral shapes. Some of the rectangular forms in this building seem to defy gravity, as we explore the properties of squares and rectangles that allowed Frank Lloyd Wright to push the envelope of design and structure.

Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: Quadrilaterals, Segment 3: Parallelograms and Trapezoids

The Puerta de Europa towers in Madrid bring parallelograms front and center. These tilted towers, looking like modern-day towers of Pisa seem to defy gravity, but rely on the stability brought about by its quadrilateral structure. The underlying parallelogram and trapezoidal designs are explored and analyzed.
