3   Born in Tuscan hill, Florensce  Buried in Château d'Amboise  Parents: Caterina da Vinci, Piero da Vinci  Died in the castle of Cloux Biography

4  Preferred to draw math (which became geometry)  Thought math was better represented with a drawing  Artistic abilities  All these things helped him create geometry Main Studies Geometry

5  Geometry is centered around the properties and configurations of geometric objects. (solids, points, straight lines ect.)  The word geometry comes from the Greek word geometria.  Geometry can be easily found in nature.  The literal translation of geometria is “to measure the earth” What did the acorn say when it grew up? Answer: “Geometry” (Gee, I’m a tree) –found by Paige What is Geometry

6  Polyhedrons are solids that always have FLAT faces.  The word polyhedron is derived from the Greek language. Poly- which means “many”, and -edron which means “faces”.  Polyhedrons can be anything from cubes to dodecahedrons. This means the number of faces can vary greatly.  Ployhedrons can never have curves Polyhedrons

7  Anemometer  Flying Machine  Helicopter (Aerial Screw)  Parachute  Giant Crossbow  Clock  Scuba Gear  Revolving Bridge Inventions
