Pages 575–578 Workshop Papers


In this workshop, the participants will learn several properties of spirals. Some of the properties are: that all spirals start from a fixed point and move out from that point in a regular manner. Other universal properties of spirals and their mathematical connections will be demonstrated by making an Archimedean spiral, a Golden spiral and a Baravelle spiral. The presenter will supply all equipment needed for the activities.
