Two pentagons are nested within a third, regular pentagon (ABCDE). They are each defined by a point on each side of ABCDE; these points are proportional along their sides at functions of t. Determine the function of t that represents the proportionality of each point. Notice that both pentagons are congruent to ABCDE when t = 0 and t…

Four points are located proportionally around a circle, according to four different functions of t. A figure connecting the four points is traced through t. What are the four functions? Look at the .gx source for the answer.
Tip: press "go" to animate t at a constant rate from 0 to ∏ and back, looped.

A circle is centered at the origin and its radius is defined by the distance between the origin and a point, P. P is defined by a polar function, u(t), and is located at the current value of t. Adjust t, or animate it by pressing ”go”. What is u(t)? Look at the .gx source for the answer.
Hint: if you look closely, u(t) can be seen in dark…[Read more]

The Twisted Savonius Wind Turbine has promising applications for rooftop usage, but its high cost has kept it unfeasible for widespread adoption. The Twisted Savonius Geometric Modeling project explored the geometric properties of the turbine’s shape, and proposed a more efficient method of construction and geometric design as a result.

The three primary types of wind turbine, the Savonius VAWT, the Modern HAWT, and the Darrieus VAWT, are animated as if in operation.
I first created this model in Geometry Expressions two years ago and after sharing it on Wikipedia it became quite popular and has been reused in many places. I decided to create an updated version, which…[Read more]

Nick Halsey uploaded a new app: Chord Angle Theorem 12 years, 2 months ago
The chord angle theorem states that in an inscribed triangle (ABC) where A is the center of the circle and BC is a chord, and BDC is an inscribed triangle on the same chord, angle BDC must equal one half of angle BAC. Try changing the angle and moving point D and observe the theorem’s truth.
Note: the measure of angle BDC is being constantly r…[Read more]

You’ll want to start out with the heptagon and work your way up. This one’s the same as all the others, just with a 13sided regular polygon. Observe the tangencies to diagonals of circles centered at intersections of diagonals, when the circles are resized (by dragging).
This is a smaller version that works well on most monitors (zoom in with…[Read more]
