Activity Guide: Building a Scale Model of Himeji Castle |
This hands-on activity is a companion to the video segment from the Geometry Applications: Angles and Planes video. In particular, it supports the segment on the architecture of Himeji Castle. |
Applications of Angles and Planes | |
Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: Angles and Planes |
In this program we explore the properties of angles and planes. We do this in the context of two real-world applications. In the first, we explore Japan's Himeji Castle and in the process learn about different types of angles and how they're used in a defensive fortification. In the second applicaiton we explore sedimentary rock layers as examples of parallel planes. We explore the Burgess Shale fossils.

Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: Angles and Planes, Segment 1: Introduction |
The observatory in Arecibo, Puerto Rico provides astronomers insights into the structure of our solar system. Geometrically, the solar system relies on the plane known as the ecliptic. In studying the Earth’s orbit it is important to know that the Earth’s axis of rotation is at an angle relative to the ecliptic. This segment introduces the key themes of the program.

Closed Captioned 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.

Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: Angles and Planes, Segment 3: Planes |
In the Canadian Rockies, the Burgess Shale fossils provide a window to prehistoric Earth. Fossil layers are folded into sedimentary rocks. And sedimentary rocks are examples of parallel planes. This segment uses the properties of planes to analyze fossils. A Video Transcript is available for this tutorial at this Link Note: The download is Media4Math's guide to closed captioned videos.
