7th Grade Golden Ratio Project
The Golden Ratio is a naturally occurring phenomenon that appears throughout the world. It can be found in nature, art, architecture, and even the human body. The Golden Ratio is an abstract concept. Students were required to use higher order thinking skills in order to comprehend this fascinating idea. Our investigation of the Golden Ratio allowed students to explore this amazing occurrence. Through the different disciplines, students were able to investigate the various appearances of the Golden Ratio.
Math class offered the opportunity to explore man’s first discovery of the Golden Ratio. In Social Studies students looked at art and architecture displaying the Golden Ratio. Science class focused on the Golden Ratio in the human body. Language Arts class gave the students the chance to rap or write using the Golden Ratio as the guiding pattern. In Core Connections were able to pull all of their learning together and organize it in a coherent manner.
