Construction and Design
Architects, engineers, design professionals, and everyday people use math in construction and design. Math can be seen in architecture and design through symmetry, frieze patterns, bridges, and construction problems that are encountered by people everyday.
Earthquakes and Math
Earthquake scientists (seismologists) use circle geometry to locate the epicenter of a quake and logarithms to classify its severity using the Richter scale.
The Richter Scale - Measuring Earthquake Magnitude
Earthquake scientists use logarithms when they measure the strength of an earthquake on "Richter Scale." That means that a magnitude 9 earthquake, like the big 2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake, is ten times as powerful as a magnitude 8 earthquake.
Suspension Bridges
Suspension Bridges encompass many mathematical concepts including its parabolic shape, the length and measurements of the bridge, the forces acting on the bridge, and elements of weather.
