SHADOWS Students use principles about similar triangles and basic trigonometry to
develop formulas for finding the length of a shadow.
GEOMETRY BY DESIGN Students explore the history of geometry and human design to learn
the concepts of congruence, transformations, geometric construction, and proof.
DO BEES BUILD IT BEST? Students study surface area, volume, and trigonometry to answer
the question, “What is the best shape for a honeycomb?”
ORCHARD HIDEOUT Students study circles and coordinate geometry to determine how long it
will take before the trees in a circular orchard grow so large that someone standing at the center of
the orchard cannot see out.
