Seventh Grade Honors Math Discovers the Mysteries of the Golden Ratio

by Brittney Lee

In a recent unit of study, 7th grade honors math classes learned about appreciating math in every day life. They learned about how their bodies fit the golden ratio, and about all the different patterns in Pascal's triangle.

As part of their hands-on application, students used math to create art.  They picked a number and colored in the multiples of that number to see the pattern within a triangle.
