geometry through my eyes
by : LaMarque Lake-Peete

started with triangle's because they are the simplest
shape and they are strongest shape and they all equal 180 degrees.then we learned how there are different types like acute obtuse , and isosceles.after that we wanted to know the area of a triangle so then my favorite math teacher taught us that area=1/2BH the we learned how triangles are used in the real world so she taught us that triangles are the main shape in trusses which are used in bridges and houses . then we went to ...
... because some quadrilaterals are made up of 2 or more
triangles. like in a trapezoid it made of 3 triangles
the sum of the angles = 360 degrees and we learned that there are a lot of quadrilaterals like rhombus ,square ,and kite are just some types of quadrilaterals. from there we went to ...

this was my favorite math class with my favorite teacher Mrs. Palmer this was geometry through my eyes
... because a polygon is just a quadrilateral with unlimited side's.The method for determining the sum of the angles is (n-2) x 180. The number of sides of a polygon is represented by n. there are also different types of polygons some of them are triangles,pentagons,and octagons it is also possible to find the area of polygons by using the formula a=1/2 apothem X side length X number of sides. ...
... because a circle is 360 degrees . The circle is divided into four equal quadrants of 90 degrees each. we also learned that from the center point
of a circle to the outer edge is the radius and if you double the radius you will get the diameter.
the formula for getting the circumference is πpi X diameter or you can use 2 X pi X radius.
A spiral is a continuous circle, Fibonacci created a formula if you take the length of the square sides in order you get the sequence 1,1.2.3,5,8,13,21, we also learned about the Pythagorean spiral . . .

the study of properties of figures as area and length which remain unchanged under a set of transformations called isometrices. my favorite was when she taught me about tessellations because i like patterns.
