Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: 3D Geometry, 1 |
Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: 3D Geometry, Segment 1: Introduction.We visit ancient Greece to learn about the Platonic Solids. This provides an introduction to the more general topic of three-dimensional figures. |
3-Dimensional Figures | |
Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: 3D Geometry, 2 |
Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: 3D Geometry, Segment 2: PyramidsRectangular 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. |
