## DCG Revision - Laminar PlanesThe topic we will be revising this week is Laminar Planes. Laminar Planes are part of the Oblique Planes section of the course. The constructions in this topic are fundamental can could be used for a number of topics such as Interpenetration (have you tried to solve one yet? Study Tip 10: https://youtu.be/SFHvXu4d_Bc).
Laminar Planes questions can come up in Section A, Section B and they are also an important part of Geologic Geometry and Surface Geometry in Section C. As you can see it is vital that you understand Laminar Planes as it's concepts and constructions will almost certainly be on your Leaving Cert exam paper come June. |
