Since several weeks ago, students have been enjoying the experience of having with us an American teacher assistant. Michael is from Washington. We try to learn as much as possible in his classes.
Our first class with 3rd and 4th years students was tittled : BEAUTY AND MATHS
First of all, he introduced the topic to pupils with some questions about beauty
-What can you say about beauty?
-What a person must have for being a beautiful person? / How must a beutiful person be?
- Do you think the beauty "concept" was the same at the ancient ages and nowadays?
- Do you think beauty follows some pattern?
- Are there any relations between beauty and Maths?
After that, when the students were interested on the topic, we showed the following video about the GOLDEN RATIO (have a look, it is very very interesting)
At the end, the students had brought a measuring tape and they measured their bodies and their faces (in pairs) to prove if they had golden ration on them!! It was very funny.
