Geometry In The Real World2

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