Division in Mean and Extreme Ratio
The base angle of the largest trinalges of most representations of Sri Yantra are about 52 degrees, close to the base angle of the Great Pyrmaid of Cheops , which is 51deg50'. With such a base angle, the ratio of the hypotenuse to half the base is phi, the Golden Ratio The design was investigated with the largest two triangles having this base angle. The construction continues similar to the 7x7 grid method. The result is striking, for apart from the fact that the error (at Z and W) is not noticeable, the overall shape is very simlar to examples from the literature . The error is only .3616% of length of the diameter. A small change in base angle results in large error - a 53 degree angle has an error of 9.125%! 1. Draw a rectangle of 2 x 1 units (ABCD) for construction of the large pyramid- angled triangles on base DC. The centre of DC is E. 2. Draw the diaganol DB. It's length is sqr-root 5, by Pythagoras. 3.

Golden Ratio Leonardo Fibonacci was an Italian mathematician with a penchant for decimalization and rabbits! Having introduced the numbers to 9 to Europe (like some medieval Big Bird from Sesame Street), he turned his attention to a different series of numbers:
The Fibonacci sequence is generated by adding the previous two numbers in the list together to form the next and so on and so on...
Divide any number in the Fibonacci sequence by the one before it, for example 55/34, or 21/13, and the answer is always close to 1.61803. This is known as the Golden Ratio, and hence Fibonacci's Sequence is also called the Golden Sequence. Unlikely though it might seem, this series of numbers is the common factor linking rabbits, cauliflowers and snails.
Fibonacci used his sequence of numbers to investigate the population growth of his favourite furry lop-eared friend, the rabbit. He based his model on a maximum-security bunny heaven where rabbits cannot escape or die, and the problem he devised goes like this...

The Golden Ratio by Mario Livio. Broadway Books, 294 pages, includes an Appendix of equations, a bibliography of further reading, and an index. $24.95 Books about science are popular these days. The physicist Brian Greene wrote a best seller untangling string theory and last year the cosmologist Hawkings gave us a lavishly illustrated coffee table tome, compressing the universe into a nutshell. Books about numbers are not that popular. But those who like to play with calculations and geometric diagrams will want to look at Mario Livio’s entertaining book about a very special numeral. In The Golden Ratio Livio tells the story of Phi, "the world’s most astonishing number." There are some numbers which turn up on special occasions and which have such curious characteristics that mathematicians eventually name them or, more precisely, symbolize them by a letter, usually from the Greek alphabet. Probably the best known numeral to be honored this way is the one you come up with when you divide the circumference of a circle by its diameter – the endless 3.14159…, the number called Pi, symbolized by the Greek p. The Golden Ratio is 1.61803… and is symbolized by the Greek letter f, Phi. Phi is not so well known as Pi, but it’s considerably more interesting and has been called the Golden Number, the Golden Ratio, the Golden Section, perhaps because of its esthetic value.

The Golden Ratio
The Golden Ratio was known to the ancients, and is the next most significant irrational number after pi. Its value (to the first 10 decimal places) is
When a larger pentagon is made with Isotiles, with its side now g, it is clear that the longer length (diagonally from each base corner to the apex) is g+1. This is the golden ratio: g is such a value that 1/g=g/(g+1) and g/1=(g+1)/g
This is the relationship that makes so many symmetrical tessellations possibile with Isotiles, and gives them a unique quality.

Lesson Overview
Projected Time Schedule for Project ... References
Lesson Overview The purpose this lesson is to provide students with a hands-on activity to accompany a unit involving ratios. In this activity, students calculate the ratio of the height of the body to the height of the navel. Students will discover that the ratios are all approximately equal. Indeed, the ratio of the height of the body to the height of the navel is consistent with the Golden Ratio. The lesson, then, introduces the concept of the Golden Ratio and provides students with knowledge to explore the presence of Golden Ratios in their everyday lives. The lesson incorporates several of the standards found in Principles and Standards for School Mathematics as encouraged by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. For example, the lesson enables students to connect mathematics to realms outside of mathematics. Specifically, the Goldren Ratio is present in nature, including the human body, and architecture. In addition, the lesson incorporates measurement by having the students use a meter stick to obtain data involving measurable attributes of concrete materials.

The Golden Ratio: The Story of Phi, the World's Most Astonishing Number By Mario Livio Random House ISBN: 0-7679-0815-5 Available for purchase at Chapter One PRELUDE TO A NUMBER Numberless are the world's wonders.-Sophocles (495-405 b.c.) Less known than pi is another number, phi (f), which is in many respects even more fascinating. Suppose I ask you, for example: What do the delightful petal arrangement in a red rose, Salvador Dali's famous painting "Sacrament of the Last Supper," the magnificent spiral shells of mollusks, and the breeding of rabbits all have in common? Hard to believe, but these very disparate examples do have in common a certain number or geometrical proportion known since antiquity, a number that in the nineteenth century was given the honorifics "Golden Number," "Golden Ratio," and "Golden Section." A book published in Italy at the beginning of the sixteenth century went so far as to call this ratio the "Divine Proportion." In everyday life, we use the word "proportion" either for the comparative relation between parts of things with respect to size or quantity or when we want to describe a harmonious relationship between different parts. In mathematics, the term "proportion" is used to describe an equality of the type: nine is to three as six is to two. As we shall see, the Golden Ratio provides us with an intriguing mingling of the two definitions in that, while defined mathematically, it is claimed to have pleasingly harmonious qualities.

THE NATURAL WORLD. The Golden Mean The Golden Mean, or golden ratio as it isknown, is an irrational number just like other important numbers such as Pi.
GEOMETRY IN THE NATURAL WORLD The Golden Mean: The Golden Mean, or Golden Ratio as it is known, is an irrational number just like other important numbers such as Pi. This means that it cannot be completely represented by our currently used number system, except as a formula ( Sqr (5)-1)/2. Just like Pi (approx. 3.1416) - Phi, or the Golden Ratio, has an endless number of digits after its decimal point and with no repetition of the digits sequences. Therefore, like other "Transcendental" numbers, its value can only be approximated (using our number system). What is the Golden Ratio, and why is it important? The Golden Ratio is approximately Besides for possessing some remarkable and unique characteristics, the Golden Mean is found in ALL living creatures on Earth. Along with the Fibonacci Sequence (which is a whole-number system approximating the Golden Ratio, discovered by Leonardo Pisano Fibonacci), this ratio is found in plants and animal life wherever one looks. For example, this ratio can be found in fingers one's hand, amongst many other places, and it is prevalent in the skeletal structure of all creatures. The Fibonacci Sequence is as follows: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, ...

    It's not often that you find a intriguing and thought-provoking mystery novel that's a creative and clever blend of mathematics, the creations of Leonardo Da Vinci, sacred geometry, history and religion. The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown , is creating much awareness and inquiry into the Fibonacci series, the golden section and phi. Yes, these are quite real in mathematics and this site has been devoted to exploring them for years before this book was published.
