Text Geometry of water sources and landforms

TLF ID A003742

Indigenous cultures have always been deeply aware of the location of water and its significance. In this resource students will apply geometric, trigonometric, and algebraic techniques to analyse idealised water body shapes and associated landforms. They will calculate surface areas, volumes, angles, and heights of these features, exploring their utility as water sources and considering seasonal variations. The calculations will also help students understand efficient traversal of challenging terrain.
