Forest Grove Students use Geometry Skills for Clean Water

The Forest Grove Middle School Honors Geometry classes learned how triangles and their points of concurrency assist in solving one of the most important problems in the world – supplying rural communities with clean water!  Students studied areas of the earth in need of clean water and the traditional ways of bringing clean water to these areas. They then studied points of concurrency and used those points to determine optimal locations for places to dig wells or provide point source filtration.  Pictured are Colin Lawrence and Sydnee Rubenstein (left to right) sharing their discoveries about Kenya, Africa.
