Geometry In The Real World

  1. 1. Geometry in the Real World Architecture By Carson Campbell Period 2 Mrs. Sykes
  2. 2. Point <ul><li>The circled object is the Capital Building in Washington D.C. It is like a point on the plane of Washington D.C. </li></ul><ul><li>A point is an undefined term in geometry. It names a location and has no size. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Line (Segment) <ul><li>The Empire State Building in NYC, New York is like a line segment because it is a straight line and has two distinct ending points. </li></ul><ul><li>A line segment is another undefined geometry term. A straight line that has no thickness and has two distinct ending points. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Plane <ul><li>The flat roof of the New England, Massachusetts home is like a plane. </li></ul><ul><li>A plane is also an undefined geometry term. It is a flat surface that has no thickness and could extend forever. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Angle <ul><li>The Emporia Armani Building in Manchester forms the circled angle on the picture to the left. </li></ul><ul><li>An angle is a figure formed by two rays with a common endpoint. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Perpendicular Lines <ul><li>The Beauchamp Chapel in Warwick forms perpendicular lines because it’s tower intersects it’s building to form a 90 degree angle! </li></ul><ul><li>Perpendicular lines are lines that intersect to form a 90 degree angle, or a right angle. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Parallel Lines <ul><li>The Twin Towers formerly in NYC, New York, are parallel lines. </li></ul><ul><li>Parallel lines are lines in the same plane that do not intersect. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Triangle <ul><li>The Flatiron Building in NYC, New York has a triangular top. </li></ul><ul><li>A triangle is a three-sided polygon. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Right Triangle <ul><li>The blue building in this picture is a right triangle. </li></ul><ul><li>A right triangle is a triangle in which there is an angle which measures 90 degrees. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Pentagon <ul><li>The Pentagon in Washington D.C. is a pentagon. </li></ul><ul><li>A pentagon is a five sided polygon. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Hexagon <ul><li>The semi-blue building at VIT University is a hexagon. </li></ul><ul><li>A hexagon is a six-sided polygon. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Square <ul><li>The St. Andrew Square Building in Scotland looks like a square in the front. </li></ul><ul><li>A square is a quadrilateral with four congruent sides and four right angles. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Rectangle <ul><li>The tall, skinny building in this picture of Tokyo, Japan is a rectangle. </li></ul><ul><li>A rectangle is a quadrilateral with four right angles. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Trapezoid <ul><li>In a walkway above St. Thames St. in London, there is a trapezoid-shaped window! </li></ul><ul><li>A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Parallelogram <ul><li>The Circled part of the Kirby Building in Dallas, Texas is a parallelogram! </li></ul><ul><li>A parallelogram is a quadrilateral with two pairs of parallel sides. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Circle <ul><li>The Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. </li></ul><ul><li>A circle is a set of points in a plane that are fixed distance from a given point called the center of a circle. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Cylinder <ul><li>The Nehru Centre in Mumbai, India is a Cylinder. </li></ul><ul><li>A cylinder is a three-dimensional figure with two parallel congruent circular bases and a curved lateral surface that connects the bases. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Sphere <ul><li>Spaceship Earth at Disney World Epcot in Orlando, Florida is a sphere. </li></ul><ul><li>A sphere is the set of points in a space that are a fixed distance from a given point called the center of the sphere. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Quadrilateral <ul><li>This gloomy looking building is a quadrilateral. </li></ul><ul><li>A quadrilateral is a four-sided polygon. </li></ul>
  20. 20. Cube <ul><li>The Ellicot Square building in Buffalo, New York is a cube. </li></ul><ul><li>A cube is a prism with six faces. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Polyhedron <ul><li>This tiny house in Bogota, Colombia is shaped like a polyhedron. </li></ul><ul><li>A polyhedron is a closed three-dimensional figure formed by four or more polygons that intersect only at their edges. </li></ul>
