Can the protons in a hydrogen atom be thought of as geometric elements? In this program the collision of subatomic particles in CERN's Large Hadron Collider is used to clarify the definition of a point, and the city of Houston, arranged on a grid of parallels and perpendiculars, illustrates why lines are preferred over curves as a way to organize a community. The video also suggests the Parthenon as a good example of how geometric elements-in this case, points, planes, and lines-are employed in architecture. Points in space, collinear and coplanar points, parallel and perpendicular lines, line segments, angles, and planes are all covered.
