A Tool for Typological Analysis
Any design problem is faced drawing from the architect's knowledge both case knowledge and general knowledge. One type of the latter is abstracted from a multiplicity of cases of which the common features are recognised in such a way as to single out a prototype representing in the best way a class of architectural objects. If applied to a set of residential buildings and to the flats in them the analysis is typological and it is one of the fundamental ways of acquiring general knowledge to be u

How to Prove Triangles are Similar
Students learn the following theorems related to similar
triangles. If an angle of one triangle is congruent to an angle of
another triangle, and the lengths of the sides that include each angle
are in proportion, then the triangles are similar (Side-Angle-Side
Similarity Theorem, or SAS Similarity Theorem). If the lengths of the
sides of two triangles are in proportion, then the triangles are
similar (Side-Side-Side Similarity Theorem, or SSS Similarity Theor
