In this paper we will explore a slightly modified version of taxicab geometry. 6. Calculate the Euclidean distance and Taxicab distance for the following two points: (4, 0), (2, 5) Taxicab Distance = _____ Euclidean Distance = _____ Name _____ Period _____ Taxicab Geometry. One of the wonderful things about Taxicab geometry is that you can keep on investigating all manner of shapes and geometrical properties. Circles: A circle is the set of all points that are equidistant from a given point called the center of the circle. What is the value of Pi in TaxiCab geometry? The so-called Taxicab Geometry is a non-Euclidean geometry developed in the 19th century by Hermann Minkowski. In Euclidean Geometry you measure the distance between two points as being the direct distance as the crow flies, whereas in Taxicab Geometry you are confined to moving along the lines of a grid. In taxicab geometry, there are many shortest paths from A to B, and is the rectangle with A and B at diametrically opposed corners. The formula for the Manhattan distance between two points p and q with coordinates ( x ₁, y ₁) and ( x ₂, y ₂) in a 2D grid is It is based on a different metric, or way of measuring distances. Geometers sketchpad constructions for ! Taxicab geometry is a nice, gentle introduction to non-Euclidean geometry. Lesson 1 - introducing the concept of Taxicab geometry to students Lesson 2 - Euclidian geometry Lesson 3 - Taxicab vs. Euclidian geometry Lesson 4 - Taxicab distance Lesson 5 - Introducing Taxicab circles Lesson 6 - Is there a Taxicab Pi ? ! The Manhattan distance is also known as the taxicab geometry, the city block distance, L¹ metric, rectilinear distance, L₁ distance, and by several other names. 5. They then use the definition of radius to draw a taxicab circle and make comparisons between a circle in Euclidean geometry and a circle in taxicab geometry. This is true because of the following reasons: First, taxicab geometry is very close to Euclidean geometry in its axiomatic structure, differing from Euclidean geometry in … The taxicab metric, also called the Manhattan distance, is the metric of the Euclidean plane defined by for all points and . ! Tools to use to solve problems . Taxicab Geometry and Euclidean geometry have only the axioms up to SAS in common. Snapshot 4 shows a taxicab hyperbola in which two entire quarter-planes of points satisfy the relationship . This is the taxicab distance between A and B. Then calculate AC+BC. Textbook – Amazon $6.95 ! Segment ! Perpendicular bisector (?) Hide everything except A, B, and the Taxicab Distance. Text book: Taxicab Geometry E.F. Krause – Amazon 6.95 ! Circle ! This book is design to introduce Taxicab geometry to a high school class.This book has a series of 8 mini lessons. In this activity, students begin a study of taxicab geometry by discovering the taxicab distance formula. So, taxicab geometry is the study of the geometry consisting of Euclidean points, lines, and angles in with the taxicab metric A nice discussion of the properties of this geometry is given by Krause [1]. The user may now create the custom tool. Calculate the distances for AC, AB, and BC. Graph the points listed in the chart below on the coordinate grid. Find the Taxicab distance between each pair of points and record it in the chart. This number is equal to the length of all paths connecting and along horizontal and vertical segments, without ever going back, like those described by a car moving in a lattice-like street pattern. For the sake of constructing the tool, change the label from “AC+BC” to “Taxicab Distance” or whatever label is most helpful. Part 1 History and Geometric Perspective.
