Geometry in the Real World<br />By: Alex Jantz<br />Block: 2a<br />
2.
Point<br />The game connect the dots has a series of points.<br />AWESOME!<br /><ul><li>A point names a location and has no size!!!!!</li></li></ul><li>Line (Segment)<br />The tops of telephone poles are line segments.<br />OH YEAH!<br />A line segment is the part of a line consisting of two end points and all the points in between.<br />
3.
Plane<br />The scrabble board can be considered a plane that is withheld inside of four points which would be the corners of the boards rim.<br />NUH- UH!<br />A flat surface that has no thickness and extends forever<br />
4.
Angle<br />If you notice, the legs come up to an end point, and make an acute angle.<br />OH MY!<br />An angle is a figure formed by two rays, or sides, with a common end point.<br />
5.
Perpendicular Lines<br />If there is a vertical stop light on a horizontal pole, then they create perpendicular lines.<br />VERY INTERESTING!<br />Perpendicular lines are two intersecting lines that form two right angles.<br />
6.
Parallel Lines<br />This photo has 5 sets of parallel lines… The metal that makes up the track itself is the best example.<br />COOL!<br />Parallel lines are lines that are always the same distance apart and will never meet.<br />
7.
Triangle<br />There are triangles surrounding the triangle door.<br />Like, Totally, Red, Man<br />A triangle is a closed plane figure having three sides and three angles.<br />
8.
Right Triangle<br />This sign forms a right triangle with the wall.<br />WOWEE!!!!<br />A triangle that has one right angle.<br />
9.
Pentagon<br />Notice how the buildings form a pentagonal shape.<br />CRAZY!<br />a polygon having five angles and five sides.<br />
10.
Hexagon<br />If you notice, the wires create hexagons in the pattern.<br />INTERESTING!!!<br />a polygon having six angles and six sides.<br />
11.
Square<br />The top face is a square.<br />COOL, COOL, COOL!!!<br />a rectangle having all four sides of equal length.<br />
12.
Rectangle<br />This picnic table has multiple different rectangles inside of it.<br />THAT’S AWESOME!<br />a parallelogram having four right angles.<br />
13.
Trapezoid<br />The actual bag is in the shape of a trapezoid. Can you see it?<br /> I CAN NOT BELIEVE IT!<br />a quadrilateral plane figure having two parallel and two nonparallel sides.<br />
14.
Parallelogram<br />This building has a lower level(biggest) shaped like a parallelogram. <br />ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?!<br />quadrilateral having both pairs of opposite sides parallel to each other.<br />
15.
Circle<br />This bottle cap, and all other bottle caps, form a circle.<br />HOLY MOLY!!!<br />a closed plane curve consisting of all points at a given distance from a point within it called the center.<br />
16.
Cylinder<br />All canned food cans form the shape of a cylinder.<br />POSITIVILUTELY CRAZY!<br />a surface or solid bounded by two parallel planes and generated by a straight line moving parallel to the given planes and tracing a curve bounded by the planes and lying in a plane perpendicular or oblique to the given planes.<br />
17.
Sphere<br />Bouncy balls and sport balls( excluding footballs) all form spheres.<br />Crazy, huh? <br />a solid geometric figure generated by the revolution of a semicircle about its diameter; a round body whose surface is at all points equidistant from the center.<br />
18.
Rhombus<br />This pool rack forms a great example of a rhombus.<br />GROOVY!<br />an oblique-angled equilateral parallelogram; any equilateral parallelogram except a square.<br />
19.
Isosceles Triangle<br />This does not mean that I am a fan of the Yankees, it is just an example of an isosceles triangle.<br />ROCKIN’!<br /> A triangle with at least two congruent sides.<br />
20.
Scalene Triangle<br />The triangle formed in this spider web is a scalene triangle. None of the sides are congruent to each other.<br />A triangle with no congruent sides.<br />
