GEOMETRY IN ARCHITECTURE, ART AND NATURE
PHASE 1 - RESEARCH IN NATURE
The objective of this phase is to conduct research on, and observe how geometry is found in, nature. Specifically, how geometry is found in the butterfly.
During this phase you will want to visit the linked site offered below. View areas of these sites that interest you and write down any general observations you make and the site address (http://...) you observed them at.
This phase works in conjuncture with the worksheet phase so will need to pull up the questions on butterflies found in phase 2 - worksheets. Read the directions at the top of the page and then select butterflies to bring up your worksheet questions. Your teacher may have paper copies of these questions already so check with your teacher before printing them out.
The following link will take you to a site that has information on butterflies. The questions on your worksheet (phase 2) are related to this site. Once you have completed your worksheet you may search for other sites that offer information on nature and butterflies.
