## 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: 3D Geometry, Segment 2: Pyramids |
## 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. |
