My last set of answers was pretty basic and I’m still getting used to that. Now that we’ve established the most basic level for answers, it’s time to move on to the next level of self-awareness.
The first level is all about the basics.
Basic geometry? Yes, it’s basically a whole bunch of circles, straight lines, and triangles. You’re gonna learn things in school that you’ve probably never thought about before. Like Pythagoras, for example.
You might have the “I’ve never thought of this” comment hanging out to the side. The first level is just to make sure you know the basic math, and the second level is to make sure you can apply it to something. The second level is about making the things you know. For example, if you have a basic understanding of Euclidean geometry, you can work out the basic Pythagorean theorem.
This level is a little harder than the first level, because youve gotta do things that youve never thought about before. Like, this is all very new knowledge for me, so you may want to start by checking out the link on the bottom.
If youre doing it right, the Pythagorean theorem shows you that the length of a line is equal to the square root of the sum of the sides squared. This is a key formula in math and a useful one. If youve never heard of it before, it is a great one to start with, especially if you want to create a geometric form for something. A simple way to do it is to draw a parallelogram, and then draw the sides parallel to each other.
You can use the Pythagorean theorem to show that two squares are the same size if they are both made up of the same number of legs. This is a useful formula that you can use to make your own shapes, or you can use it to determine the length of a shape by taking the square root of the sum of the sides squared… and voila! (if i didn’t say it was useful enough to make it into a useful math book).
Well, the sat geometry book says the same thing, but they’re not quite the same thing.
The Pythagorean theorem tells us that two squares are the same size if they are both made up of the same number of legs. If you have an equilateral triangle with sides of length a, b and c, you can use the Pythagorean theorem to show that they are the same size if they are both made up of the same number of legs.
