Voronoi Diagrams & Proximity Problem (GeoMAP)
Matthew Dickerson and Scot Drysdale

Mathematics Topic: Geometry 
Application Areas: Various 
Prerequisites: Algebra

Many interesting problems in the "real world" can be thought of as proximity problems. In a proximity problem you are interested in finding relationships among various objects based on how close they are to each other. In this unit, students use the properties of Voronoi diagrams to explore issues such as choosing a location for a restaurant and deciding which emergency unit should respond to a crisis.
