## VIDEO: Geometry Applications: 3D Geometry, 2 |
## 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. |

## VIDEO: Geometry Applications: Quadrilaterals |
## VIDEO: Geometry Applications: QuadrilateralsIn 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. |

## VIDEO: Geometry Applications: Quadrilaterals, 3 |
## VIDEO: Geometry Applications: Quadrilaterals, Segment 3: Parallelograms and TrapezoidsThe 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. |
