 GEOMETRY WEBQUEST by Tom Rohnkohl Introduction Part 1 Part 3 Summary ... Student Evaluation Rubric Introduction: This webquest is designed to expand the beginning level geometry student's knowledge of common geometric definitions/terms and their applications. In addition, this webquest will provide the student with an opportunity to utilize a software program called The Geometer's Sketchpad. This program is a powerful tool which exposes students to the technology that is available for the study of Geometry and significantly enhances students' understanding of geometric concepts. In part 1, students will be asked to choose a minimum of 8 terms from the list provided. Using the links provided, or others, students will formally define the terms they have chosen, citing from where they obtained the definition. In part 2, students will form their own definition of the terms. To supplement their own definitions, students will use Geometer's Sketchpad as a means of providing a picture along with their definition. Lastly, in part 3, students will be asked to find instances of how and where these terms and/or topics are used in nature or in the real world. In other words, where can they be applied. A few links will be provided to get students started with this section of the webquest. However, this step is considered to be the research portion of the webquest and will be relatively difficult and time consuming. It will also provide students with valuable practice using search engines to find information on the web.

##### An Introduction to the Applications of Geometry in Cryptography
There are two main goals in cryptography.
• Guaranteeing confidentiality of information. ENCIPHERING Providing methods that make error detection and evidence of tampering possible. Â AUTHENTICATION
• Consequently, since cryptosystems are typically based on secret keys, the storing and distribution of these secret keys is a central part of cryptography. Geometry fits into the development and study of cryptosystems in the following ways. As opposed to relying on unintelligible complexity or unproven assumptions, the cryptosystems based on geometric methods provide provably high levels of security that are simply realizable. What follows is an introduction to basic notions and terms in cryptography. Once the basics have been established, a method for enciphering using a hyperplane of a d-dimensional projective space of order 2 will be introduced.
##### Basic Notions and Terms
We have the following set-up. A sender wants to send data to a recipient in such a way that confidentiality is ensured, and if this confidentiality is compromised, there must be a way of recognizing this. Enter cryptography.

##### Reviewed by Randall J. Swift
Geometry is the mathematical study of shape and form. Its ancient origins are found in such practical applications as surveying and architecture, while today, geometry is applied to such diverse areas as DNA analysis, quantum physics, and decision theory. Geometry at Work is a collection of highly readable papers in applied geometry. The papers are organized according to area of application. The collection begins with a very interesting and well-written introduction on the nature of applications of knowledge. This philosophical discussion provides a framework and sets the tone for this broad collection of papers. The first part of the collection contains papers on Art and Architecture, where several nice articles on the geometry of architectural ornamentation can be found. The paper by P. Calter on Trigonometry and FaÃ§ade Measurement has several nice elementary applications of trigonometry, which can be used to supplement a course in trigonometry. The collection then proceeds with some interesting historical work on the geometry of the Vedic civilization. David Henderson's work on square roots in the Sulbasutras is very enlightening for its historical context.

Particular emphasis is laid on a diffeomorphism invariant geometric approach to embedding the space of Schwartz distributions into algebras of generalized functions. The foundations of a `nonlinear distributional geometry' are developed, supplying a solid base for an increasing number of applications of algebras of generalized functions to questions of a primarily geometric mature, in particular in mathematical physics. Applications of the resulting theory to symmetry group analysis of differential equations and the theory of general relativity are presented in separate chapters. These features distinguish the present volume from earlier introductory texts and monographs on the subject. Audience: The book will be of interest to graduate students as well as to researchers in functional analysis, partial differential equations, differential geometry, and mathematical physics.

##### Abstract:
We use random sampling for several new geometric algorithms. The algorithms are ``Las Vegas,'' and their expected bounds are with respect to the random behavior of the algorithms. These algorithms follow from new general results giving sharp bounds for the use of random subsets in geometric algorithms. These bounds show that random subsets can be used optimally for divide-and-conquer, and also give bounds for a simple, general technique for building geometric structures incrementally. One new algorithm reports all the intersecting pairs of a set of line segments in the plane, and requires O(A+n log n) expected time, where

116. Application Challenges To Computational Geometry
Application Challenges to Computational geometry. It is hoped it will engage a communitywide discussion on the future of computational geometry.
Next: Preamble
##### Abstract:
With rapid advances in computer hardware and visualization systems, geometric computing is creeping into virtually every corner of science and engineering, from design and manufacturing to astrophysics to molecular biology to fluid dynamics. This report assesses the opportunities and challenges this presents for the field of computational geometry in the years ahead. Can CG meet the algorithmic needs of practitioners? Should it look to applied areas for new sources of problems? Can CG live up to its potential and become a key player in the vast and diverse world of geometric computing? These are some of the questions addressed in this document. It was prepared by a group of computer scientists, engineers, and mathematicians with extensive experience in geometric computing. This report is intended as a wake-up call rather than an agenda setter. It is hoped it will engage a community-wide discussion on the future of computational geometry.

##### Geometry
Instructional programs from prekindergarten through grade 12 should enable all students to
• analyze characteristics and properties of two- and three-dimensional geometric shapes and develop mathematical arguments about geometric relationships;
• specify locations and describe spatial relationships using coordinate geometry and other representational systems;
• apply transformations and use symmetry to analyze mathematical situations;
• use visualization, spatial reasoning, and geometric modeling to solve problems.
Geometry and spatial sense are fundamental components of mathematics learning. They offer ways to interpret and reflect on our physical environment and can serve as tools for the study of other topics in mathematics and science. Geometry is a natural area of mathematics for the development of students' reasoning and justification skills that build across the grades. As the study of the relationships among shapes and their properties becomes more abstract, students should come to understand the role of definitions and theorems and be able to construct their own proofs. For example, students in high school should be able to prove that the area of a triangle formed by vertices that bisect the sides of a larger triangle equals one-fourth of the area of the larger triangle. Principles and Standards calls for geometry to be learned using concrete models, drawings, and dynamic software. With appropriate activities and tools and with teacher support, students can make and explore conjectures about geometry and reason carefully about geometric ideas.

 New! We are now soliciting workshop proposals for 2005. Please review our guidelines for proposals PR ofessional E nhancement P rogram (PREP) enables faculty in the mathematical sciences to respond to rapid and significant developments that impact undergraduate mathematics. PREP workshops offer extended professional development experiences with active involvement by all participants, leadership by experts, and a commitment by participants to make use of what they learn. PREP workshops serve faculty in the mathematical sciences from all types of institutions, at all stages in their careers, and enable faculty to reach beyond their own educational experiences. To achieve a sustained impact, PREP workshops extend over time with preparatory, intensive and on-going components. Follow-up components are typically held in conjunction with the Joint Mathematics Meetings each January. PREP is a project of the MAA with anticipated funding by DUE of the National Science Foundation. PREP programs are equally open to all faculty, independent of whether or not they are members of the MAA or any other professional organization. Although most of the programs in PREP are for faculty in the mathematical sciences, those from other disciplines are welcome and some programs may specifically encourage communication among mathematics faculty and those from other disciplines.
