Patterns Across Cultures: The Fibonacci Sequence in Visual Art

11/5/2012 12:00:00 AM
This lesson plan from ArtsEdge teaches about the origin of the Fibonacci Sequence, how to identify it in nature and visual arts, and why it is important. This two-hour lesson aimed at grades 9-12 includes a link to a video that shows how the Fibonacci Sequence works in nature. The instructional part of the site tells how to engage the students in the topic and gives ways to build on their understanding. See the relationship between the Fibonacci Sequence and the Golden Ratio and see the use of these two concepts in the art of M.C. Escher and the Alhambra. Students can then apply their knowledge by analyzing a specific work of art.
