AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 SHAPES (example of a Power. Point Presentation) Name: Class: Teacher:

1) Overview: Eg. Introduction of megastructures a. b. c. d. e. Great Wall of China Burj Al Khalifa Sydney Harbour Bridge Eiffel Tower Hoover Dam

2) Identification of 2/3 D Shapes Megastructure #1 - Picture of megastructure - Graphical overlay of 2/3 D shapes found in that megastructure - For all 2 D shape describe the physical features such as type of shape and dimensions (length and angles). - For all 3 D shape describe the physical features such as faces, edges, vertices and net.

2) Identification of 2/3 D Shapes Megastructure #2 - Picture of megastructure - Graphical overlay of 2/3 D shapes found in that megastructure - For all 2 D shape describe the physical features such as type of shape and dimensions (length and angles). - For all 3 D shape describe the physical features such as faces, edges, vertices and net.

2) Identification of 2/3 D Shapes Megastructure #3 - Picture of megastructure - Graphical overlay of 2/3 D shapes found in that megastructure - For all 2 D shape describe the physical features such as type of shape and dimensions (length and angles). - For all 3 D shape describe the physical features such as faces, edges, vertices and net.

2) Identification of 2/3 D Shapes Megastructure #5 - Picture of megastructure - Graphical overlay of 2/3 D shapes found in that megastructure - For all 2 D shape describe the physical features such as type of shape and dimensions (length and angles). - For all 3 D shape describe the physical features such as faces, edges, vertices and net.

3) Research and Reflection a. Research and reflect on 1 megastructure. b. Outline the roles that the shapes play in this megastructure (examples of some questions below) – Why was the overall shape of the megastructure been chosen? – Were the shapes used because they strengthen the building? – Was the building constructed for just appearances? Does it look good? – Does the megastructure have any religious/culturally meaning?
