# geometry in real life maths project

Question:I am not asking you to do my homework for me, but I would highly appreciate it if you could help me out on this project. I have to take pictures of our geometry class's lesson concepts in the real world. Could you help me find examples of the following: -points -planes -line segments -midpoint -segment bisector -acute angle -obtuse angle -right angle -acute triangle -obtuse triangle -right triangle -scalene triangle -isosceles triangle -equilateral triangle

Answers:There are many examples of these items in your daily life. Look around your neighborhood, go to a supermarket. Look at billboards, at street signs (the yield is a good example of a equilateral triangle, you may find obtuse angles in all sides of a stop sign). Look at your school supplies too (geometry rulers make excellent isocelles and escalene triangles). Most Rooftops are angled. Check patterns on your clothing. All of these are good suggestions.

Question:I'm a doing a project in geometry where we need an example of a plane used in real life. This can come from a magazine, newspaper, online, but not hand made. Please answer!!! Please! Please! Please!

Answers:Come on, Kali .. A plane is a flat "infinite" surface. Walls, floors, ceiling, the expanse of a field of corn/wheat/soybeans. Looking up the front of a skyscraper .... Anything that gives you a feeling a infinity.

Question:im doing a project on math and i want a subject that will be really interesting. the math needs to be around algebra 2 level, but im having trouble deciding what to do because i have to show the math and how it is used. any help would be appreciated

Answers:Hi, Try conic sections. A parabola is the basis for the satellite dishes that pull in TV signals. They are also the shape of the back of a headlight that focuses the light from the car down the road. An ellipse is a shape they use to build a lithotripter, which is a machine they can use to break up kidney stones for people. A hyperbola relates to hoe air traffic control figures out the locations of airplanes while they're in flight. A circle puts every point on its edge equidistant from the center, something they use in stages built in the round. That's just quickly done off of the top of my head. I also added a website that may be helpful to you!! I hope that helps you!! Good luck!! :-)

Question:I have to make a video about something in real life that I can figure out using projectile motion. (For example, if a football is punted at an angle of 50 degrees and at a velocity of 25mph and it must go over the 10 foot bar, is the kick good?) Can anyone think of a project idea for me that doesn't necessarily have to do with sports?

Answers:How about cannon balls? Click on the first source link I posted below. Of a fireman trying to put out a fire? Click on the second source link I posted below for the math. You can modify this to a gardener sprinkling plants.
