GEOMETRY PROJECT
















Go to the Internet Site: http://cs.unm.edu/~joel/

 

Scroll down and Click on NON EUCLID.

 

Scroll down and Click on “What is Non Euclidean Geometry?” and read through.

 

Go back and click on “Run Non Euclid using Java Web with Save and Print Permission" to run the applet. Use the applet and the attached instructions for "My First Triangle" to become acquainted with NonEuclid and create your first sketch and investigation.

 

Continue following the instructions and work through activities 1 through 7. The activities you must explore are:

            1. My First Triangle (1 sketch)

            2. Angles (2 questions, 1 sketch)

            3. General Triangles (7 questions, 4 sketches)

            4. Isosceles Triangles (3 questions, 1 sketch)

            5. Equilateral Triangles (3 questions, 1 sketch)

            6. Right Triangles (1question, 1 sketch)

            7. Congruent Triangles (6 questions, 1 sketch)

1.  You may draw your sketches of your constructions or print out each sketch. Make sure your measurements for your figures are included.Answer any questions that are posed along with your sketch on the same paper!

 

2.  Write a one page paper comparing Euclidean Geometry with Non Euclidean Geometries.

 

3.  Turn in your paper, sketches and the answers to the

questions in a  folder. Your folder should include your

one page paper, sketches for activities 1 through 7,

and the answers to the questions posed in the activities
