Designs in 90 Seconds: Shadows + Trigonometry

by David Hamilton, Director of Programs.

In our latest “Designs in 90 Seconds” video, we explore the connection between shadows and trigonometry.

Trigonometry comes from the greek words “trigona” (triangle) and “metrisei” (measure). It is the branch of math dedicated to measuring triangles. Shadows are all about triangles. If you’re a fan of math, or triangles, or shadows, or even monsters, check this out and let us know what you think. First, you might want to watch our previous video on how to create dynamic shadows using paper and a point source light.
