Go For the Gold
Go for gold to understand the concept of the Golden Ratio. Learners measure their faces, their nose length, eye space, mouth location, etc. This information is used to determine the ratios of their facial features in order to determine how close their facial features are to the Golden Ratio.

New Review Alice in Fractalland
Take your class on a field trip to Fractalland where they'll learn all about number and shape patterns. Based on Disney's movie Alice in Wonderland, this resource takes young mathematicians on an adventure as they explore patterns in math including Pascal's Triangle, the Fibonacci Sequence, Mandelbrot's fractals and much more.

Class of Gold
How can you see a number in nature? Here, learners discover both Fibonacci numbers and the golden ratio by exploring a number of different resources. Note: Some of the resources are older and may be missing some of the links, but the activity does contain a number of ideas that are worth checking out.
6th - 9th Math
The Golden Ratio
Tenth graders explore two number patterns that approach the value of the Golden Ration. In this Golden Ratio lesson, 10th graders work with a partner to find the ratio of their height to the distance from their head to their fingertips. Students construct figures with their dimensions that form the Golden Ratio and define the exact value of the Golden Ratio provided.
Tenth graders investigate the Golden Ratio. In this geometry lesson, 10th graders explore the Fibonacci sequence in the context of The Fibonacci Rabbit problem. Students examine how the ratio of two consecutive Fibonacci number create the golden Ratio and identify real-life example s of the Golden ratio.
Students study the Golden Ratio and its relationship to Renaissance artists. After exploring proportions and ratios used by Renaissance artists, students create a mix of ten variations of color paint, and record the ratios of primary colors used to get each variation.
8th - 10th Visual & Performing Arts
Golden Ratios of the Body, Architecture, and Nature
Students explore the defintion of a ratio. In this mathematics lesson, students list what they know about ratios and the ways ratios are used. They represent, calculate, and simplify ratios, then research Fibonnacci sequence and the Golden Ratio using websites.
9th - 12th Math
The Golden Rectangle
Students investigate the concept of the golden ratio. They also apply this knowledge to the construction of geometric shapes. The cause and effect realtionship of changing values is explained to them. Then students construct a rectangle shape based on the golden ratio.
3rd - 5th Math
Texas Instruments Calculator Basics: TI-83 Plus
Students explore the operations of a TI-83 Plus calculator. Using web tutorials, they practice using the basic keys. Students complete a golden ratio worksheet. They perform power and root calculations. Students visit designated websites to graph and calculate equations.
9th - 12th Math
Proportional reasoning, ratio, and indirect measurement come to life in a series of seven lessons. Learners will convert measurements into customary and metric units. They also use real-world examples to solve problems involving scale as they examine maps of their home states and calculate distances between cities.
