Indirect Measurement Techniques-- Grade Eight
Eighth graders explore indirect measurement. In this elementary mathematics lesson, 8th graders use shadows and the concept of similarity mirrors to see reflected images and use a stadia to conduct indirect measurement. The lesson provides a real-world application of proportional reasoning and similar triangles.
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.

New Review The World Around Me
Have your learners use their surroundings as inspiration for an art project. Class members first examine and discuss art. They then choose an area and spend five days taking down observations in written and sketch form. These observations will be the starting point for original works of art in their own choices of medium.
