Computer Classification of Triangles and Quadrilaterals--A Challenging Application. Illinois Series on Educational Applications of Computers. Number 19.
Dennis, J. Richard
Exercises for high school students are presented which entail designing computer programs to enable the computer to identify a geometrical figure as a specific type of triangle or quadrilateral, given its 2-dimensional coordinates. Computer programming skills required are not sophisticated, but a solution requires careful analysis of necessary and sufficient conditions for each figure type. If a computer is not available, flow chart solutions are possible. Flow chart samples of possible solutions to a variety of both triangle and quadrilateral identification problems are presented.
