Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications--Antiprisms

Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications--Antiprisms

In 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

Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications--Rectangular Prisms

In this video students learn the basics of rectangular prisms, in the context of a New York residential tower: 432 Park Avenue.

Rectangular Prisms

Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications--Triangular Prisms

Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications--Triangular Prisms

In 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.

Triangular Prisms

Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications--What Are Prisms?

Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications--What Are Prisms?

In 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.

Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: 3D Geometry

Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: 3D Geometry

In 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.

Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: 3D Geometry, Segment 2: Pyramids

Rectangular 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.

Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: Quadrilaterals

Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: Quadrilaterals

In 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.

Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: Quadrilaterals, 1

Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: Quadrilaterals, Segment 1: Introduction

Stonehenge 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.
