Geometry Applications: Triangles, Segment 2: Triangles

The Eiffel Tower includes quite a number of exposed triangular trusses. The properties of triangles are used to explore and explain the frequent use of triangular trusses in many building. In particular, isosceles and equilateral triangular trusses are explored. In addition triangle postulates and similarity are explored and analyzed.
