Basic
Airplane Aerodynamics
Geometry Activity II
Subject Area:
Geometry
Grade Level:
10  11
National Mathematics
Standard:
Deduce properties
of, and relationships between, figures from given assumptions.
National Technology
Standards:
 Research Tools
 Use contentspecific tools, software and simulations (e.g., environmental
probes, graphing calculators, exploratory environments, Web tools) to
support learning and research.
 ProblemSolving
and DecisionMaking Tools  Routinely and efficiently use online
information resources to meet needs for collaboration, research, publications,
communications, and productivity.
Objective:
You will
be able to prove angles congruent by use of the alternate interior angle
theorem.
Beginner's Guide to
Aerodynamics is a "textbook" of information prepared at NASA Glenn Research
Center to help you better understand how airplanes work. Click
Beginner's
Guide Index to access the list of slides. Open the slide called Glide
Angle (with text) to learn about how a glide angle measures
the flying efficiency of the glider. Then complete the problem set found
at Geometry Activity II to demonstrate
your ability to prove angles congruent.
Assessment:
You will
be evaluated on your proof to the problem.
Evaluation:
You will
be able to prove that the angles are congruent by the alternate interior
angle theorem.
