Looking for Geometry :  Looking for Geometry In the Wonderful World of Dance “A dignified formal dance is delicately planned Geometry” -Ruth Katz :  “A dignified formal dance is delicately planned Geometry” -Ruth Katz Dance as an Interdisciplinary Tool:  Dance as an Interdisciplinary Tool a form of learning facilitates development Alternative Integrates Geometry and Dance:  Geometry and Dance Elements of Geometry are used as Elements Choreography Choreography:  Choreography Attention is paid to the form, look, shape, and feel Manipulating time, energy, and space Manipulation of Space:  Manipulation of Space Space design and dance structure evolve together through the use of space elements These elements are shape/line, level, direction, focus, points on stage, floor patterns, depth/width, phrases and transitions Shape and Line :  Shape and Line Shape of Dance Shape of Movements Choreography Decides Shapes and Lines :  Shapes and Lines Curved Angular Linear Symmetrical and Asymmetrical :  Symmetrical and Asymmetrical In symmetrical design the body parts are equally proportioned in space In asymmetrical designs the body parts are not equally proportioned in space Points on Stage :  Points on Stage Upstage Right Upstage Center Upstage Left Center Right Center Center Left Downstage Right Downstage Center Downstage Left George Balanchine:  George Balanchine 1904- 1983 George Balanchine :  George Balanchine Founder of the School of American Ballet (1934) and the New York City Ballet (1948) Major figure in Mid-20th Century Ballet Created 425 dance works Classical Modern American Style Ballet Dances free from symmetrical form Celebrated for imagination and originality George Balanchine (cont.):  George Balanchine (cont.) Shifting geometric patterns Stressed straight lines Serenade (1934) The Nutcracker (1954) Symphony in Three Movements (1972) Stravinsky’s Variation for Orchestra (1982) Using dance as a Reinforcement :  Using dance as a Reinforcement Primary Grades -dance can be used to reinforce diagonals, vertical and horizontal lines on a plane Secondary Grades -recreate the concepts of symmetry and asymmetry, shown on paper, and recreate them through movement and dance “Rhythm and Symmetry are the connectors between Dance and Math” -Dance can reinforce geometry’s basic concepts and construction. :  -Dance can reinforce geometry’s basic concepts and construction. Primary and Secondary Geometry in Art:  Geometry in Art By: Laura Szymanik Definitions:  Definitions Polygon: Union of segments in a plane meeting only at endpoints or the vertex points. Polyhedron: is an object that has many faces, also known as platonic solids. Types of Regular Polygons:  Types of Regular Polygons pentagon (5 sided) hexagon (6 sided) heptagon (7 sided) octagon (8 sided) nonagon (9 sided) decagon (10 sided) Slide19:  Polygons and Pyramids Polygons and pyramids are another example of polyons. A pyramid has two bases and rectangular faces to close it. A pyramid has one base and triangular faces to close it. The faces meet at one point called the apex. Types of Regular Polyhedrons:  Types of Regular Polyhedrons cube (face is a cube) tetrahedron (face is an equilateral triangle) octahedron (face is an equilateral triangle) icosahedron (face is an equilateral triangle) dodecahedron (face is a regular pentagon) Slide21:  CUBE OCTAHEDRON DODECAHEDRON TETRAHEDRON ICOSAHEDRON Relationship Between Polygons and Polyhedrons:  Relationship Between Polygons and Polyhedrons A polyhedron and polygon share some of the same qualitites. A regular polyhedrons face is the shape of a regular polygon. For example: A tetrahedron has a face that is an equilateral triangle. This means that every face that makes the tetrahedron is an equilateral triangle. Around all the vertices and every edge is the same equilateral triangle. Relationship Between Polygons and Polyhedrons:  Relationship Between Polygons and Polyhedrons A polyhedron is made of a net which is basically like a layout plan. It is flat and made of all the faces that you will see on the polyhadron. For example: A cube has six faces all of them are squares. When you open the cube up and lay it out flat you see all the six squares that it is made of. Slide24:  Examples in Art Slide25:  Leonardo da Vinci’s Polyhedras Tessellations in Art:  Tessellations in Art Ginger Baker What is a Tessellation?:  What is a Tessellation? Definition A dictionary* will tell you that the word "tessellate" means to form or arrange small squares in a checkered or mosaic pattern. The word "tessellate" is derived from the Ionic version of the Greek word "tesseres," which in English means "four." The first tilings were made from square tiles. Different types of Tessellations:  Different types of Tessellations A regular tessellation means a tessellation made up of congruent regular polygons. [Remember: Regular means that the sides of the polygon are all the same length. Congruent means that the polygons that you put together are all the same size and shape.] Only three regular polygons tessellate in the Euclidean plane: triangles, squares or hexagons. Continued...:  Continued... Semi-regular Tessellations You can also use a variety of regular polygons to make semi-regular tessellations. A semiregular tessellation has two properties which are: It is formed by regular polygons. The arrangement of polygons at every vertex point is identical. M.C. Escher:  M.C. Escher Popular artist who used tesselations often The twists and turns of the human mind were brought to life in the work of Dutch artist M.C. Escher. His artwork is a mix of distorted perspectives and optical illusions. Impossible angles, connections, and shapes were Escher's favorite subjects. M.C. Escher:  M.C. Escher M.C. Escher was born in the European country of The Netherlands on June 17, 1898. His art is famous all over the world. Although he was not trained as a mathematician or scientist, you may have seen one of Escher's works on the wall of your math class at school. His work was respected by both mathematicians and artists. M.C. Escher:  M.C. Escher His use of patterns, images that change into one another and perspectives are fascinating. Escher also created tesselations, or interlocking patterns. Some of Escher’s Work:  Some of Escher’s Work Day and Night:  Day and Night Sky and Water:  Sky and Water 76 Horse Symmetry:  76 Horse Symmetry Other artists:  Other artists If you are fascinated by the work of the late Dutch artist M. C. Escher, the recognized master of the two dimensional planar tessellation or regular division of the plane, then you should also enjoy Seattle graphic artist K. E. Landry's work. Landry's inventory of 2D tessellation images include both natural creatures and geometric art demonstrate congruent objects arranged with symmetry that often challenge the eyes ability to pick out the "members of the cast." Landry:  Landry Landry has gone "Beyond Escher" to design his tessellation images with internal geometry that allows a dissection of the planar components, which after folding and pasting, allows an onlay, inlay, or overlay of many of the convex 3D spatial shapes including the, Platonic, Prism and Antiprism, and Archimedian polyhedra. These 'enhanced' polyhedra are called the "Decorated Polyhedra."

We will call the Golden Ratio (or Golden number) after a greek letter,Phi although some writers and mathematicians use another Greek letter, tau. Also, we shall use phi (note the lower case p) for a closely related value. A simple definition of Phi There are just two numbers that remain the same when they are squared namely 0 and 1. Other numbers get bigger and some get smaller when we square them: Squares that are bigger Squares that are smaller 22 is 4 1/2=0·5 and 0·52 is 0·25=1/4 32 is 9 1/5=0·2 and 0·22 is 0·04=1/25 102 is 100 1/10=0·1 and 0·12 is 0·01=1/100 One definition of Phi (the golden section number) is that to square it you just add 1 or, in mathematics: Phi2 = Phi + 1:  What is the golden section (or Phi)?

Phi and the Golden Section in Art :  Phi and the Golden Section in Art As the golden section is found in the design and beauty of nature, it can also be used to achieve beauty and balance in the design of art.  This is only a tool though, and not a rule, for composition. The golden section was used extensively by Leonardo Da Vinci.  Note how all the key dimensions of the room and the table in Da Vinci's "the last supper" were based on the golden section Slide46:  The French impressionist painter Georges Pierre Seurat is said to have "attacked every canvas by the golden section Note that successive divisions of each section of the painting by the golden section define the key elements of composition.  The horizon falls exactly at the golden section of the height of the painting.  The trees and people are placed at golden sections of smaller sections of the painting.  The Golden Section in Art The Golden Section in Art:  The Golden Section in Art Golden Section:  Golden Section
