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.
This video describes the geometry of the Flat Iron Building, as well as its architecture. It includes animations that demonstrate the key features of triangular prisms.
