Journey to the Center of a Triangle: Watch the 1977 Digital Animation That Demystifies Geometry




In 1977, Bruce and Katharine Cornwell used a Tektronics 4051 Graphics Terminal to create animated short films that demystify geometry. The films have now reemerged on the Internet Archive. Journey to the Center of a Triangle appears above. You can also watch below Congruent Triangles, which features the memorable ‘Bach meets Third Stream Jazz’ musical score. Enjoy them both. And find them in the Animation section of our collection, 4,000+ Free Movies Online: Great Classics, Indies, Noir, Westerns, Documentaries & More
