The Golden Ratio

Today in Junior Unit A, students put their understanding of ancient Greek architecture and the golden ratio to the test as they built and designed their own Grecian structures.  Each design had to follow the Greek ideals of balance and proportion while maximizing limited building materials (drinking straws). Fifth grader Stephen B. noted, "One of the three little pigs built his house out of straw.  We're building ours out of straws, too!"
