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.

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.
