Video Transcript: Geometry Applications: Triangles

This is the transcript for the video of same title. Video contents: In this program we explore the properties of triangle. We do this in the context of two real-world applications. In the first, we explore the triangular trusses in the Eiffel Tower and in the process learn about key properties of triangles. In the second application, we look at right-triangle-shaped sails on sail boat and why these are the ideal shape for efficient sailing.
