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.
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.
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!
Young scholars calculate the ratio of sides in a rectangle. In this rectangles lesson, 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. Young scholars 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 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.
Learners analyze a given set of data for the existence of a pattern and represent that pattern. In this Fibonacci series lesson plan, students create the Fibonacci series and identify how the Golden Ratio is calculated and how it is used in music. Learners also discover the many different ways that the Fibonacci series occurs in real-world situations and how to generate the values of Pascal's Triangle.
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 does contain a number of ideas that are worth checking out.
