#### Transcript of HOW ARE TRIANGLES USED IN THE REAL WORLD

**How triangles are related to geometry and society: "Applications of Geometry" **

If there is a single most important shape in engineering, it is the triangle.

Unlike a rectangle, a triangle cannot be deformed without changing the length of one of its sides or breaking one of its joints. In fact, one of the simplest ways to strengthen a rectangle is to add supports that form triangles at the rectangle's corners or across its diagonal length. A single support between two diagonal corners greatly strengthens a rectangle by turning it into two triangles. Triangulation of material, adds strength by eliminating lateral movement.

Where is Geometry used?

Why is Geometry important to society?

by: Jonathan Maddox

Every where you go you see how geometry is used and how it is important to today's society

For examples triangles are used most commonly in geometry and society for Architecture

HOW ARE TRIANGLES USED IN THE REAL WORLD??

architects use triangles when building bridges, roofs on houses, and other structures

Examples of triangles used in Architecture

As you can see, triangles are extremely important in engineering and thus an important topic for us to explore in this Geometry course. We are going to learn how to classify triangles, identify congruent triangles and explore the relationship between transformations and triangles
