Geometry In The Real World2 Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Geometry in the REAL World Luke Campbell Block Four Star Wars
  • 2. Point
    • a position in space
    • Alderaan was the point in space where the line of the Death Star ray ended.
  • 3. Line
    • a straight set of points that extends off into infinity in both directions
    • The line created by the Death Star continued on endlessly.
  • 4. Plane
    •   a flat surfaces that stretches off into infinity
    • The plane Tatoonie was a flat wasteland that seemed to stretch endlessly to the sky.
  • 5. Angle
    • the union of two rays with a common endpoint.
    • When the lightsabers crashed, many angles were formed.
  • 6. Perpendicular Lines
    • two lines are perpendicular if the angle between them is 90 degees
    • When Luke raised his lightsaber, two perpendicular lines were formed.
  • 7. Parallel Lines
    • two lines are parallel if they are in the same plane and never intersect
    • As the Jedis stood ready for battle, their sabers were parallel to each other.
  • 8. Triangle
    • a three sided polygon
    • When the enginers for the tie fighter designed the ship, the hexagonal wings were made with six triangular panels.
  • 9. Right Triangle
    • a triangle that contains a right angle
    • When Luke brought his father a rectangular cake, it was divided into two right triangles symbolizing the two sides of the force.
  • 10. Square
    • a quadrilateral with four equal sides and four 90 degree angles
    • The Imperial Class Star Destroyer II has an interior room shaped like a square.
  • 11. Pentagon
    • a five sided polygon
    • The Tyridium Shuttle has a verticle fin which is in the shape of an irregular pentagon.
  • 12. Hexagon
    • a polygon with six sides
    • The tie fighter’s wing is in the shape of a hexagon.
  • 13. Rectangle
    • a quadrilateral with four 90 degree angles
    • Star Wars Turbo Tank Vehicle has several windows and doors in the shape of rectangles.
  • 14. Trapezoid
    • a quadrilateral that has exactly two sides parallel
    • Out of his trapezoid shaped window, Darth Vader watched the dog fight in 3-D.
  • 15. Parallelogram
    • a quadrilateral with opposite sides parallel
    • Many of the panels on the Millennium Falcon are parallelograms.
  • 16. Circle
    • the set of points in a plane that are a fixed distance from a given point
    • Jedi Ship is suspended in a circular ring.
  • 17. Cylinder
    • the union of all line segments that connect corresponding points on congruent circles in parallel planes
    • R2D2’s body is a cylinder.
  • 18. Sphere
    • the set of all points in space that are a fixed distance from a given point
    • The Death Star is a sphere shaped space vehicle disguised as a small moon.
  • 19. Cone
    • the union of all line segments that connect a point and a closed curve in a different plane from the point
    • General Grievous’ ship
  • 20. Prism
    • A solid with parallel congruent bases which are both polygons. The bases must be oriented identically. The lateral faces of a prism are all parallelograms or rectangles.
    • Two of the Naboo roofs are trapezoidal prisms.
  • 21. Decagon
    • A polygon with 10 straight sides.
    • The stain glass in the Jedi Temple has a star shaped decagon in the center.
