GEOMETRY IN ROBOTICSRobotics 8

Geometry in RoboticsWhy is geometry important in our Robotics class?

Important Geometry terms to use in RoboticsGeometry in Robotics

Geometry in RoboticsRight Angle A 90 degree angle.Where would we use right angles with our robots?Can you name a part that uses a 90 degree angle?

Geometry in RoboticsPerpendicular Line SegmentsTwo line segments which cross to form 90 degree angles.Where would we use perpendicular line segments with our robots?

Geometry in RoboticsVertex The intersection point of two sides of a plane figure.Where would we use a vertex with (or where would one be at on) our robots?

Geometry in RoboticsAcute Angle An angle less than 90 degrees but greater than 0 degrees.Where would an acute angle become important to us when in competition?

Geometry in RoboticsObtuse Angle An angle greater than 90 degrees but less than 180 degrees.Give me a scenario where an obtuse angle would be needed in competition.

Geometry in RoboticsRay The part of a straight line considered as originating at a point on the line and as extending in one direction from that point.Where would you use a ray in robotics?

Geometry in RoboticsParallel Line Segments Line segments that do not intersect.Where on the robots would you have parallel line segments?

Geometry in RoboticsRight Triangle A triangle with one internal angle equal to 90 degrees.Give an example of where a right triangle is used in robotics.

Geometry in RoboticsParallelogram A quadrilateral having both pairs of opposite sides parallel to each other.(Note: squares and rectangles are also quadrilaterals.)Where would you use a parallelogram in robotics?

Geometry in RoboticsRectangleA parallelogram having four right angles.(Note: a square is also a rectangle.)Where on the robot is a rectangle commonly used?

Geometry in RoboticsSquare A rectangle having all four sides of equal length.Other than on the robot, where is a square used in competition?

Geometry in RoboticsCircle A closed plane curve consisting of all points at a given distance from a point within it called the center.Where is a circle commonly used on the robot?

Geometry in RoboticsDiameter A straight line passing through the center of a circle or sphere and meeting the circumference or surface at each end.In what situation would knowing what the diameter of a circle would be important?

Geometry in RoboticsRadiusA straight line extending from the center of a circle or sphere to the circumference or surface. Name a time when using a radius is important in competition.
