VIDEO: Algebra Applications: Functions and Relations

In this episode of Algebra Applications, students explore the following scenario: Scientists use conic sections to map the trajectories of spacecraft in flight. The setting for this episode is a planned future flight to Mars. As the ship travels from Earth to Mars, parabolic, circular, and elliptical paths are explored. In the process students will learn the difference between a quadratic relation and a quadratic function.

VIDEO: Algebra Applications: Functions and Relations, Segment 4: Elliptical Paths.

The planets orbiting the sun follow elliptical paths. In fact, the trajectory of a spacecraft traveling to Mars would also be elliptical. Students explore these various ellipses.

VIDEO: Geometry Applications: Polygons, Segment 2: Properties of Polygons

In the ancient city of Marrakesh polygons are on display. As part of the Islamic tile work prevalent throughout the Middle Ages, Marrakesh provides an opportunity to explore the properties of polygons, and how these properties are taken advantage of in the intricate designs found throughout this fascinating city.

VIDEO: Geometry Applications: Circles, Segment 3: Chords and Inscribed Angles

The Roman Pantheon is a domed structure that shows a keen awareness of the position of the sun throughout the year. The source of light from the top of the dome allows for the exploration of chords, inscribed angles, central angles, and intercepted arcs.

VIDEO: Geometry Applications: Angles and Planes, Segment 2: Angles

Himeji castle in Japan is a marvel of architecture and a startling example of geometry and military science. The castle was used to protect samurai armies from invading forces, and the use of acute, obtuse, and right angles as part of the defense structure provide many opportunities for exploring the nature of geometric angles.

VIDEO: Geometry Applications: Circles

In this program we explore the properties of circles. We do this in the context of two real-world applications. In the first, we look at the design of the Roman Coliseum and explore how circular shapes could have been used to design this elliptical structure. In the second application we look at the Roman Pantheon, specifically its spherical dome, to see how the properties of chords and secants help clarify its unique design.
