MathArt HYBIRD Winter/Spring 2017 (Jan. - Apr.) – Patterns in Nature, the Arts & Sciences:

There will be two live classes for the course with 12 weekly self-paced topics to study. The first and last lesson will be taught live.

This class fosters projects, discussions, activities, and student and teacher presentations centered around seeing the mathematical connections with nature's geometric patterns, art by studying famous artists and architects and doing cool MathArt projects. Student participation includes doing student chosen hands-on activities and projects about nature, math, (mainly geometry)science, art and architecture connections. The two live classes include class discussions, powerpoint presentations and videos by students and teacher.

The MathArt HYBIRD Winter/Spring 2017 (Jan. - Apr.) – Patterns in Nature, the Arts & Sciences covers the following topics:

Week #1 – Geometric Beauty of Snowflakes

Week #2 – Geometric Beauty of Snowflake Part II

Week #3 – Patterns in Nature: Circular Patterns; Bonus lesson: Patterns in Nature: Animal Coat Patterns

Week #4 – The Geometrics of the Universe; Bonus lesson: Patterns in Nature: The Hexagon

Week #5 – Logarithmic Beauty of the Chambered Nautilus Part I

Week #6 – Logarithmic Beauty of the Chambered Nautilus Part II

Week #7 – MathArtist: M. C. Escher and Tessellations

Week #8 – Escher & Tessellations Part II; Bonus lesson: The Seven Crystal Systems

Week #9 – Mathematics of Music Part I; Bonus lesson: Butterfly and Moth Patterns

Week #10 – Mathematics of Music Part II

Week #11 – Human Body Proportions Part I

Week #12 – Human Body Proportions Part II

MathArt is a course for students who are curious and desirous to learn the creative side of math as a right brain function. It is a great study to discover math in nature, art and in all of science. The whole family is welcome to take the course for one price. 

  

Both Classes will be recorded and made available for enrolled families and can be used in the event of missing class. The two live Classes will be 1 hour long each. Classes are available for the whole family's participation.

 

MathArt - will use the CurrClick Live Virtual Classroom. A computer microphone and high-speed internet connection is necessary. 

 

This course is a project based experiential learning model and students are asked to keep a portfolio and MathArt journal. There are no grades or tests, but hard copy portfolios and digital eportfolios (using the CurrClick Live Blog), can be saved and used for parents needing proof of student math work for the state.


If you have any questions about my classes, please contact me at gab21921@gmail.com.

 

I look forward to meeting you and your family soon!


Sincerely,

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
