Mitchell T. Heaton Mr. Szorc Honors Geometry 12 May 2009 Flatland: General Guide Questions 1. The only thing that is visible in Flatland is a Straight Line. No matter the shape, be it a Circle, a Square, or a Pentagon, the only thing visible is a Straight Line. 2. Flatlanders determine direction in a few ways. Predominantly, Flatlanders determine direction by a natural attraction. They are naturally attracted to the South. The Females, however, have a stronger attraction in comparison to males. Flatlanders can also determine direction because of rain. In Flatland, the rain always comes from the North and is therefore another means by which Flatlanders are able to determine direction. Lastly, Flatlanders use houses and trees to determine direction. The sides of houses are always built in the North and south directions so that the roof, the North side, can be positioned in the correct way to fend off rain. In the country, Flatlanders use the trunks of trees as guides. Overall, Flatlanders do not have an extremely hard time telling direction, as it might seem. 3. Houses face to the East and West with their sides facing either North or south. The reason for these strict guidelines is the direction from which the rain comes. Because the rain comes from the North, the sides of houses are positioned towards the North and South so that the roof is in the correct position for rain run-off. 4. The houses in Flatland are constructed as five-sided figures or pentagons. 5. The houses are shaped so that in the North is the roof, in the East is a small door for women, in the West is a larger door for men, and in the south is the floor. 6. Square houses are discouraged because of the measure of their angles. Flatlanders, in order to prevent the injury of a native, strongly discourage Square houses and their sharp angle measures. 7.
