Aesthetic Appeal of Mathematics Term Paper

… Mathematics

From conch shells to chrysanthemums: nature abounds with spectacular arrays of geometrical forms. Their visual forms can be translated into mathematical equations, enabling an intellectual understanding of the ways such geometric forms are created and replicated throughout the visual world. Translating visual forms into equations does more than satisfy thirst for computation, though. As the "science of total intellectual order," mathematics enables human beings to perceive order in the universe, to see neither a random collection of petals nor a smelly set of sea creatures ("Patterns, Order, and Chaos," p. 189). In addition to helping human beings perceive natural order in a frequently chaotic universe, mathematics also encourages several key functions including generalization, idealization, and abstraction. The equations the mathematician conceives can be applied…. [read more]

PHI Golden Ratio Term Paper

… History Of Phi, Mathematical Connections, And Fibonacci Numbers: Nature's Golden Ratio

Throughout history, humans have been seeking to define beauty in quantifiable and meaningful ways. For many observers, the connection between beauty and the rhythmic patterns evinced in the Fibonacci series is clear. While the Fibonacci series is named for an early 13th century Italian mathematician, the so-called Golden Ratio known as phi is repeated throughout nature and a surprising number of human endeavors alike, including music, architecture, language and even stock market cycles. In some cases, the manifestation of the Golden Ratio in human endeavor in these ways may be unintentional, but in others it is clearly an integral part of the design process. Likewise, in nature, the ubiquity of the Fibonacci series may…. [read more]

Geometry of Design Elam, Kimberly. ) Book Review

… Geometry of Design

Elam, Kimberly. (2001). The Geometry of Design. New York: Princeton Architectural Press.

The Geometry of Design is not a book about nature, physics, or even of design. Instead, it is a relatively short and simple overview of the role of geometry within nature -- whether it is the analysis after the fact from a human perspective or the way nature works that we find pleasant, the book explains the prevalence of the Golden Mean and other geometrical thermos within nature's design.

Proportion in Man and Nature - Proportion is all around us, it is in everything designed within the sphere of nature; a leaf, a shell, a flower. And these proportions are instinctively pleasurable for us, which is likely the reason why…. [read more]

Historical Fiction and U.S. Slavery

The unit described herein will focus on the issue of slavery in the United States while also exploring the role that historical fiction can play in developing critical thinking, forming connections between people, ideas, and other times/cultures, and even in better understanding the modern world through an understanding of past technologies, capabilities, and limitations. Multiple technologies will be used throughout the unit to aide in the exploration of a specific text from multiple perspectives, identifying ways in which this text relates and ties to the lives of the fifth-grade students immersed in, and allow learners to make more immediate and direct connections between the text and the experiences embedded in it and their own life experience.

New Reference Is Not Required. A Total Essay

… New reference is not required. A total of 15 references are needed

Baroque architecture from the late seventeenth century onwards was fully determined by the cultural interests of the Christian churchs, whether Catholic or Anglican. It was an expressive form designed to counteract the Reformation view of simplicity. As part of the counter-Reformation, the Baroque was reactionary and wished to reassert the dominance of the church through the display of florid, dynamic, and powerful forms that would move its audience to recognize ecclesiastical power. To this end, it invented a style based on curves and emotionality, eliminating a more linear and transcendent style common in Roman predecessors which was meant to replicate harmony and peace. The Baroque wanted noise and dynamism.

Out of this cultural…. [read more]

Mannerism, Like Every Period in Art Thesis

… Mannerism, like every period in art or cultural movement was tributary to its time and the place it emerged from. Some scholars frame the period of mannerism between 1520 and 1620, others between 1520 and 1600, depending on the art form. It is certain that it emerged in Italy, at the pique of Renaissance and led into Baroque. Mannerism is a period of individualism, intellectualism and to a certain extent, anti-classicism, but it never escaped the laws of the classic style, characterized by balance, even when things got out of proportion, perspective was intentionally misrepresented and mystery was the key ingredient introduced to appeal to a highly intellectual and advised target public.

The sixteenth century in Europe is characterized by spirit of adventure fuelled by…. [read more]

Tom Shulich ("Coltishhum") a Comparative Chapter

… 40).

Thus, from the perspective of the bottom rung of Indian society, it is Lapierre's contention that the self/other dichotomy if not fully eradicated, at least becomes practically irrelevant. Lapierre's slum dwellers refuse to entertain invidious distinctions between self and other. The familiar as well as the stranger, the healthy and the diseased, the old and the young -- all are taken in and cared for in one big, harmonious community of the urban poor. In a society of unfortunates who all must struggle simply to survive against great odds, no one is rejected "marginal." The denizens of Calcutta's slums, Lapierre tells us, "had reconstructed the life of their villages in urban exile" (p. 41).

Classicism in Nazi Architecture and Classicism in Le Corbusier Term Paper

… Architecture

Classicism in Nazi Architecture and Classicism in Le Corbusier

Architectural styles say a great deal about a people's values and aspirations. From the soaring spires of the gothic cathedrals of medieval Europe to the glass and concrete office buildings of today, the outward appearance of buildings helps to shape cultures and cultural attitudes. The gothic cathedral represents the religious and mystical yearnings of humankind, reaching ever upward, tapering off in the sublime vastness of the skies. The modern office building depicts the triumph of commerce and industry, a structure built of industrial age materials that frees itself from traditional constraints of location and mass. As such, architecture is often shaped by the religious, commercial, political, or artistic doctrines of specific groups or individuals. In…. [read more]

People Essay

… For them to succeed, an ability to think of what is appealing and the ability to do and interpret research that will determine what will sell are a combination of both.

Analytic/Critical Thinking

The third kind of thinker necessary to the equation is the critical thinker. This person must be able to do both kinds of thinking simultaneously. The analytical/critical is the most creative kind of thinking, what used to be known as the Renaissance man, the archetype being Leonardo da Vinci, of course, the creative inventor. These kinds of thinkers see no reason to separate science and mathematics from art. In this person's mind the two are woven so tightly as to be completely seamless. The adept critical thinker can balance the associative and…. [read more]

Pieter Jansz. Saenredam Research Paper

… Pieter Jansz. Saenredam was a Dutch painter most commonly known for his involvement in producing paintings of church interiors during the seventeenth century. There is much controversy with regard to Saenredam's interest in religion, considering how his paintings tend to portray elements that have little to nothing to do with the original elements present in buildings he painted. In addition to expressing little to no interest in the religious aspect of his work, Saenredam also did not consult a professional architectural painter. The painter's background and life experiences in general makes his work intriguing, especially considering that it is actually difficult to address his paintings without concentrating on the architectural and religious aspects they contain.

Perspective before reality

Saenredam's work is certainly difficult to categorize…. [read more]

Machine Age the Five Architectural Projects Reviewed Essay

"Great music is in a sense serene; it is certain of the values it asserts."

-Rebecca West (Simpson)

Contrary to the consensus some students purport, a thesis does not constitute a torture tactic designed by professors to traumatize students. In fact, according to Teitelbaum (1), "The thesis paper, when carefully assigned and conscientiously done, has definite value." Professors usually assign the thesis paper as a major component of a course requirement. The researched…. [read more]

Brain-Based Learning Theory Term Paper

… For instance, a student's brain extracts important information by observing various things at a time. For instance, the mentor's attitude, facial expressions, body language, classroom environment, color of the textbooks, animations. Moreover, we as learners learn a great deal by constant processing of our brain while we smell, taste, move and see simultaneously. Therefore instructional design must be formulated keeping in mind the fact that though "every brain is unique" (Brain-based learning, 1998-2001) there are "six cognitive domains of learning" (Leigh) as proposed by Bloom's taxonomy and nine instructional events put forth by Robert Gagne (Leigh). Bloom's self-explanatory cognitive domains included knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis and evaluation (Saettler, 1990). Moreover, the comprehensive categorized taxonomy of Gagne in 1962 as published in "Military Training and…. [read more]

A Look at the Italian Renaissance

The objective of this project is to look into the artists of the Renaissance and understand their influence of their art on the world. Most artists are unaware that they are making an impression; they simply respond to their instincts as an artist. The late Michael Jackson is an example of this. While it can be said that he was slated for greatness, he was actually doing what came very naturally for him. From a child singing to an adult inventing the moonwalk, he was following his artistic flairs, wherever they took him. The artists of the Renaissance were not different from this at all. They understood art a little bit different from everyone else and…. [read more]
