## Wildlife Refuge |
##
## DescriptionIn this module students use their geometry and algebra skills to analyze a wildlife refuge in Nevada. Calculating the area, perimeter, and the ratio of the two allows students to analyze different configurations for a refuge. Specifically, they look at ways of designing a wild horse refuge, using the concepts they have learned. |

## Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications--Antiprisms |
##
## DescriptionIn this video students learn the basics of antiprisms, in the context of New York’s Freedom Tower, which has an antiprism design. They learn the properties of antiprisms, with the focus on those with a square base. |
Rectangular Prisms | |

## Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications--Rectangular Prisms |
##
## DescriptionIn this video students learn the basics of rectangular prisms, in the context of a New York residential tower: 432 Park Avenue. They learn the properties of rectangular prisms, with and without square bases, and the architectural requirements that influence the use of both types of rectangular prisms. |

## Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications--Triangular Prisms |
##
## DescriptionIn this video students study a real-world application of triangular prisms: The Flat Iron Building in New York City. This building is an ideal example of a real-world prism and also provides a tie-in to right triangle geometry. |

## Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications--What Are Prisms? |
##
## DescriptionIn this video students learn the basics of prisms and anti prisms. They learn the properties of triangular prisms, rectangular prisms, triangular antiprisms, and rectangular antiprisms. |
Rectangular Prisms, Triangular Prisms | |

## Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: 3D Geometry |
##
## DescriptionIn 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. |

## Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: 3D Geometry, Segment 2: Pyramids |
##
## DescriptionRectangular 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. A Video Transcript is available for this tutorial. |

## Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: 3D Geometry, Segment 3: Cylinders |
##
## DescriptionThe Shanghai Tower in China is a stack of cylindrical shapes, where each successive layer is a percentage decrease of its lower neighbor. As with the previous section, this introduces the notion of a geometric sequence and series. A Video Transcript is available for this tutorial. |

## Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: Quadrilaterals |
##
## DescriptionIn this program we explore the properties of quadrilaterals. We do this in the context of two real-world applications. In the first, we explore the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright as an application of squares and rectangles; in particular, we look at his Fallingwater house. |

##
## DescriptionStonehenge is best known as a circular structure. But it’s the post and lintel construction used that is noteworthy, and this type of construction involves quadrilateral shapes. |

## Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: Quadrilaterals, Segment 2: Squares and Rectangles |
##
## DescriptionFrank Lloyd Wright’s architectural masterpiece Falling Water is also a stunning assembly of quadrilateral shapes. Some of the rectangular forms in this building seem to defy gravity, as we explore the properties of squares and rectangles that allowed Frank Lloyd Wright to push the envelope of design and structure. |

## Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: Quadrilaterals, Segment 3: Parallelograms and Trapezoids |
##
## DescriptionThe Puerta de Europa towers in Madrid bring parallelograms front and center. These tilted towers, looking like modern-day towers of Pisa seem to defy gravity, but rely on the stability brought about by its quadrilateral structure. The underlying parallelogram and trapezoidal designs are explored and analyzed. |
