BEAUTIFUL MATH

The only  C (or B)  I ever made in school was in geometry

and I probably would have made an F if I had not gone in early or stayed late for extra credit


I just never did 
"GET IT"

or....did I?





somehow
when the grade became moot
and math became beautiful
it changed
everything

geometry

Hello:

This is a tricky one!! One of us has Maths for a subject, the other English, and not always agreement as to the merits of which subject.

But we both love those topiary, clipped yew hedges.

It is a good thing that others have that great skill for I am another who knows just the basics...the right side of my brain seems to work much better!

Those topiary looks so cool

I love Math
I used to give lectures on the history of Mathematics.

Math was always pretty easy for me and I love the geometric shapes of cones and orbs and all things beautiful! xo Diana

I remember saying that I would never use all this math! Little did we know!

I've always been good at Math, actually pretty strange for an artist. Love the boxwood topiaries you posted. Oh how I would love to stroll through those gardens.

There you have it. When the reality of MATH or any other subject is at the forefront, then we the student start to see the love. I must remember this post my friend, for being a teacher of French, I have to always find a way to make it shine, especially for those dear kids who don't GET IT. But eventually, they do GET the bigger picture. Oh how lovely! Anita

É Páscoa! Cristo está vivo, o túmulo está vazio, Ele ressuscitou!!! A mais bela festa dos Cristãos.
Crentes no Amor de Deus Pai que nos deu seu Filho Jesus Cristo que permanece conosco pela força do
Espírito Santos, seguimos nossa caminhada na construção de um mundo mais justo, fraterno, humano,
harmonioso e de doação.
Todos somos promotores da Paz!
Feliz, Santa e Abençoada Páscoa.
Marie.

Such a brilliant observation Gina, we use geometry so much more than we realise. From scheduling our day to planting out a garden to working out how many slices of pizza we will eat. It still boggles my mind too though. Wonderful image selections, you really do have such great taste;)
Have a lovely week. xxx

I'm dyslexic and, even though I love those forms, they are impossible for me to duplicate.

Gina, very thought provoking post. I have never been a friend to math, but I loved the art part of geometry, and look how it translates in the landscapes, beautiful! I hope all is well and all your kiddos, too. xo Nancy
