Geometry Applications: Points and Lines, Segment 2: Points

Geometric objects are abstractions that seem to have a connection to real world objects. In the case of a geometric point, we visit the CERN particle accelerator in Switzerland, where the smallest known subatomic particles are produced, to see how subatomic particles compare to geometric points. A mathematical analysis reveals the nature of geometric points and point-like materials objects.
