Real life geometry

September 10, 2006 - 6:03 pm 3 Comments

As a kid, I thought I’d never use geometry. As an adult, I find myself needing geometry at least once a week. Try designing a quilt block without geometry! Try finding a recipe for an 11×17″ sheet pan of cornbread and figuring out what size cast iron skillet you’d need! Try figuring out how much paint you’ll need for a room with a sloped ceiling!

Let’s not even get into algebra. Suffice it to say that you need this stuff.

    All I have to say about that is:

    negative b, plus or minus the square root of b squared minus 4ac, all that over 2a.
