In an odd coincidence with our last class, Science Friday just put up a video about the sculptor!
Mirrors What happens when we have two mirrors? What if the mirrors are parallel? What if instead they intersect? What if we make the angle between them larger or smaller? How many images do we see? Try the activity and followup here. Rotations Rotations can give powerful effects, especially when you combine multiple rotations or introduce… Read More Playing with Symmetry
For this project, you have a choice to work in symmetry patterns or in geometric sculpture. Option A: Symmetry Patterns Develop a portfolio of symmetry patterns. Your portfolio should include a total of 5 patterns. The choice of symmetry type is up to you, as is the choice of the type of work and method… Read More Project 3
We started talking about symmetry last week with the snowflakes exercise. Since we won’t be together on Monday, post two (or more) images related to symmetry. These could be pictures that you take of symmetry in the world, your own sketches or other work, or symmetric pieces you like done by others. Post them in… Read More Symmetry comments!
For the last few weeks, we have made various things and I want to give links and resources to help you make and build more! Polyominoes! For our first exploration we took a look at polyominoes. There are a number of games and puzzles that make use of tetrominoes (Tetris) or multiply polynominoes (Blokus). We… Read More Making Geometry: Part I
