Golden Ratio Lab
Learners investigate the Golden Ratio in this algebra I or geometry lesson. They explore the Golden Ratio as the conduct an experiment in which they collect various measurement from their team members and find the regression equations for the data.
The Golden Ratio
Students study the golden ratio approach using rectangles and a pentagram and make connections about proportional relationships. In this ratio relationships lesson plan, students describe ratio relationships as decimals and make comparisons. Students participate in a golden ratio activity in which they measure, record, and compute ratio relationships.
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 plan, 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 examine the Fibonacci Sequence and how those numbers create the Golden Ratio. They identify real-life examples of the Ratio.
Are You a Golden Ratio?
Students explore the concept of the golden ratio in nature and architectural design. They discuss examples such as petals on a sunflower and the Parthenon. In small groups they take turns measuring their body parts to find a golden ratio.
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.
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. They draw goofy faces that are proportional according to the golden ratio. A great way to incorporate history, art, and math!
The Golden Ratio ID: 8271
Tenth graders explore the Golden Ratio. In this geometry lesson plan, 10th graders investigate the ratio of height to distance from the top of the head to the end of the fingers and a Fibonacci sequence as they explore the Golden Ratio.
There's Gold in Them Thar Ratios
Students draw a model of the bunny problem which generates the Fibonacci Sequence, spirals generated from golden rectangles and golden triangles; identify the golden ratio in the human body, and find the Fibonacci numbers in nature.
Students calculate the ratio of sides in a rectangle. In this rectangles instructional activity, students measure envelopes, index cards and other given items. They determine the ratio of the sides of the shapes. Afterward, they explore the Golden Ratio. Students measure and compare body parts and decide if the ratios are close to the Golden Ratio. In groups, they find Golden Ratios in their school.
Students integrate the patterns of Fibonacci into music. For this geometry lesson, students apply the concepts of recursion, pattern and Phi or Golden Ratio to composing and playing music on various instruments. They lesson is co-taught with a music teacher.
I Am Golden
Young scholars become familiar with patterns, the Fibonacci Sequence, and the Golden Ratio. They see how many places these occur. They have practical applications for using the calculator and making charts to extend patterns.
The Golden Students
Scholars view the video, "Donald Duck in Mathmagic Land," and discuss examples in nature which have proportions of the golden ratio. They measure and record different body lengths from a worksheet and convert the ratios to equivalent decimal forms.
Learners 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. They predict how much colors would change with different ratios.
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.
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.
Golden Fibonacci and Ratios
Students investigate the "golden ratio" and the Fibonacci sequence in nature, architecture, and art. The lesson links the Fibonacci rabbit breeding sequence as a number pattern that reveals the "golden ratio."
The Golden Ratio
Students solve problems using ratios and proportions. In this algebra lesson, students verify proportions, solve for the unknown and use real life scenario to model proportion.
Golden Ratio Lesson
Students engage in a lesson that is based upon the study of the Golden Ratio. They use ratios of classroom objects and use proportional reasoning to determine if they share the characteristics of the application of the Golden Ratio. Students also measure rectangles in order to determine if they contain it also.
