A Mathematical Detective Story: Decoding the Golden Ratio

Saturday, July 20, 2013 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

We're surrounded by pattern and rhythm. From the branching of an ancient oak to the classical architecture of a courthouse, our environment reflects principles of harmony and repetition. We can use the language of mathematics to see this underlying reality. We'll explore our world through the Golden Ratio and other tools that show how forms lead to function. This family-friendly presentation is part of Oregon State's da Vinci Days activities.
