Betsy Byars A to Z Teacher Stuff Welcome to Berenstain Bears Country - The Official Berenstain Bears Website Phi 1.618 ø PHI: The Golden Ratio or Golden Section (In Nature, Art, Science and Religion) The Golden Section is a unique Ratio (or relationship between parts) that seems to be preferred by Nature as the best geometry for growth, energy conservation, elegance and has some fundamental relationships to the platonic solids and the Mandelbrot set. It was formally discovered by the Greeks and incorporated into their art and architecture, but it has been shown to occur even in prehistoric art, possibly as a function of Man's natural affinity for it's beauty. The rectangle at left has a vertical edge length of 1 the horizontal or width of the rectangle is 1.618 If we make a line inside and form a square (far left) it creates another 'golden rectangle' (at right) this subdivision continues inward in a spiral fashion tracing the form of a perfect PHI spiral seen in galaxies, seashells .... Even your hand, arm, ear, teeth, etc are in PHI Proportions!

TANGRAM Aspetti didattici del gioco Questa applicazione consente di avviare, attraverso una esperienza concreta, all'intuizione dei concetti di conservazione di area e di confronti di aree. Nel gioco sono disponibili diverse figure da comporre. Qualsiasi figura realizzata con il tangram deve essere costituita impiegando tutti i sette pezzi. Le tessere potranno essere spostate per ottenere figure con forme diverse, ma equiestese. Il compito del tutor sarà quello di sollecitare a riconoscere, ed evidenziare l'equivalenza delle figure, confrontando le diverse forme ottenute in precedenza. I movimenti rigidi da applicare alle figure sono: - la traslazione (tieni premuto il tasto sinistro del mouse e trascina la figura), - la rotazione di 45° oraria, - il ribaltamento (solo del parallelogramma).
