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.
