    Guessing in Geometry Hypothesis 1- I predict that if people are good at guessing the length of a line they will be good at guessing the degrees of an angle. 2- I predict that the higher the schooling year the better the estimate. Target population I have decided to investigate within the schooling ages of 7 and 9 firstly because these are easily available to collect due to having timetables and knowing where all the students will be when needed to guestimate. Another reason

    However, in baking geometry has a bigger role in the presentation of the good rather than the building of it. For example, if baking a batch of Christmas cookies you will utilize geometry to find the various shapes you want to create. You will use different size circles in order to create a snowman. The snowman will be 4 inches in diameter and will decrease

    Greek Geometry Essay

    • 2 Pages

    the Greek culture contributed to geometry and how they used it. It is almost unavoidable for a student in nearly any math course, regardless of level, to hear about famous Greek mathematicians. This is because they made so many discoveries that are directly related to many of the math principles in use today. A small example of this idea is that we are in an entire course dedicated to geometry. This is for a good reason, because as I will now discuss, the geometry discoveries of the Greeks are invaluable

    Fractal Geometry In the past, mathematics has been concerned largely with sets and functions to which the methods of classical calculus could be applied. Sets or functions that are not sufficiently smooth or regular have tended to be named as " pathological" and not worthy of study. They were regarded as individual curiosities and only rarely were thought of as a class to which a general theory might be applicable. However, in recent years this attitude has changed. Irregular sets provide a

    Fractal Geometry The world of mathematics usually tends to be thought of as abstract. Complex and imaginary numbers, real numbers, logarithms, functions, some tangible and others imperceivable. But these abstract numbers, simply symbols that conjure an image, a quantity, in our mind, and complex equations, take on a new meaning with fractals - a concrete one. Fractals go from being very simple equations on a piece of paper to colorful, extraordinary images, and most of all, offer an

    Euclidean Geometry is the study of plane and solid figures based on the axioms and theorems outlined by the Greek mathematician Euclid (c. 300 B.C.E.). It is this type of geometry that is widely taught in secondary schools. For much of modern history the word geometry was in fact synonymous with Euclidean geometry, as it was not until the late 19th century when mathematicians were attracted to the idea of non-Euclidean geometries. Euclid’s geometry embodies the most typical expression of general

    evolved from simple counting and measurement to shaping the earth's economy, government, and humanity(Shah). Geometry, being one of the key concepts in mathematics, entails such detail in points, lines, surfaces, shapes, and angles(NYU Engineering). People come across those properties in their everyday lives and careers. Careers normally involve problem solving, which is a massive part of geometry. While solving those daily tasks, the task is normally put into some sort of geometric equation(Thelwall)

    Differences in Geometry

    • 3 Pages

    Differences in Geometry Geometry is the branch of mathematics that deals with the properties of space. Geometry is classified between two separate branches, Euclidean and Non-Euclidean Geometry. Being based off different postulates, theorems, and proofs, Euclidean Geometry deals mostly with two-dimensional figures, while Demonstrative, Analytic, Descriptive, Conic, Spherical, Hyperbolic, are Non-Euclidean, dealing with figures containing more than two-dimensions. The main difference between

    Most of geometry is based on two main constructions, circles and straight lines. In geometry, there are many different tools used for construction such as the compass, the straightedge, carpenter’s square, and mirrors. (Princeton) A compass is an instrument that is used to help draw circles. The two most well-known compasses are the modern compass and the collapsible compass. The straightedge is a tool that has no curves. It is used to draw straight line when knowing two points. (Princeton) The only

    Analytic Geometry Essay

    • 2 Pages

    Analytic geometry combines algebra and geometry in a way that allows for the visualization of algebraic functions. Rene Descartes, a French philosopher, and Pierre de Fermat, a French lawyer, independently founded analytic geometry in the early 1600s. Analytic geometry subsequently paved the way for calculus and physics. Fermat was born in 1601 in Beaumont-de-Lomagne, France and initially studied mathematics in Bordeaux with some of the disciples of Viete, a French algebraist (Katz 2009). He went
