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!
Learners engage in a lesson plan 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.
Young scholars 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. Young scholars participate in a golden ratio activity in which they measure, record, and compute ratio relationships.
Tenth graders explore two number patterns that approach the value of the Golden Ration. In this Golden Ratio lesson plan, 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.
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 lesson plan does contain a number of ideas that are worth checking out.
