Geometry

Chapter 11

InformalStudy of Shape
• Until about 600 B.C. geometry was pursued in response to practical, artistic and religious needs. Considerable knowledge of geometry was accumulated, but mathematics was not yet an organized and independent discipline.
• Beginning in about 600 B.C. Pythagoras, Euclid, Thales, Zeno, Eudoxus and others began organizing the knowledge accumulated by experience and transformed geometry into a theoretical science.
• NOTE that the formality came only AFTER the informality of experience in practical, artistic and religious settings!
• In this class, we return to learning by trusting our intuition and experience. We will discover by exploring using picture representations and physical models.
Informal Study ofShape
• Shape is an undefined term.
• New shapes are being discovered all the time.
• FRACTALS
InformalStudyof Shape

Our goals are:

• To recognize differences and similarities among shapes
• To analyze the properties of a shape or class of shapes
• To model, construct and draw shapes in a variety of ways.
NCTM Standard Geometry in Grades Pre-K-2

Children begin forming concepts of shape long before formal schooling. They recognize shape by its appearance through qualities such as “pointiness.” They may think that a shape is a rectangle because it “looks like a door.”

Young children begin describing objects by talking about how they are the same or how they are different. Teachers will then help them to gradually incorporate conventional terminology. Children need many examples and nonexamples to develop and refine their understanding.

The goal is to lay the foundation for more formal geometry in later grades.

Point
• Line
• Collinear
• Plane
If two lines intersect, their intersection is a point, called the point of intersection.
• Parallel Lines
Line segment
• Endpoint
• Length
Half Line
• A point separates a line into 3 disjoint sets:

The point, and 2 half lines.

The angle separates the plane into 3 disjoint sets: The angle, the interior of the angle, and the exterior of the angle.
Degrees
• Protractor
Zero Angle: 0°
• Straight Angle: 180°
• Right Angle: 90°
Acute Angle: between 0° and 90°

Only five possible regular polyhedra exist. The union of a polyhedron and its interior is called a “solid.” These five solids are called PLATONIC SOLIDS.
Networks

A network consists of vertices – points in a plane, and edges – curves that join some of the pairs of vertices.

Traversable

A network is traversable if you can trace over all the edges without lifting your pencil.

Topology
• Topology is a study which concerns itself with discovering and analyzing similarities and differences between sets and figures.
• Topology has been referred to as “rubber sheet geometry”, or “the mathematics of distortion.”
Euclidean Geometry
• In Euclidean Geometry we say that two figures are congruent if they are the exact same size and shape.
• Two figures are said to be similar if they are the same shape but not necessarily the same size.
Topologically Equivalent

Two figures are said to be topologically equivalent if one can be bended, stretched, shrunk, or distorted in such a way to obtain the other.

Topologically Equivalent

A doughnut and a coffee cup are topologically equivalent.

According to Swiss psychologist Jean Piaget, children first equate geometric objects topologically.
We will consider 3 attributes that any two topologically equivalent objects will share:
• Number of sides
• Number of edges
• Number of punctures or holes
Consider one strip of paper
• How many sides does it have?
• How many edges does it have?
Consider one strip of paper
• How many sides does it have? 2
• How many edges does it have? 1
• How many sides does it have?
• How many edges does it have?
• How many sides does it have? 2
• How many edges does it have? 2

Now cut the loop in half down the center of the strip. Describe the result.

Mobius Strip

This time make a loop but before taping the ends together, make a half twist. This is called a Mobius Strip.

• How many sides does it have?
• How many edges does it have?
Mobius Strip

This time make a loop but before taping the ends together, make a half twist. This is called a Mobius Strip.

• How many sides does it have? 1
• How many edges does it have? 1

Now cut the Mobius strip in half down the center of the strip. Describe the result.

How many sides does your result have? 2
• How many edges? 2
• What do you think will happen if we cut the resulting strip in half down the center?
• Try it! What happened?
Make another Mobius strip
• Draw a line about 1/3 of the distance from the edge through the whole strip.
• What do you think will happen if we cut on this line?
• Try it! What happened?
• Make sure they are taped completely
• Tape them together at a right angle. (They will look kind of like a 3 dimensional 8.)
• Cut both strips in half lengthwise.
Compare the number of sides and edges of the strip of paper, the loop, and the Mobius strip.
• Are any of those topologically equivalent?
