Mr. Colburn’s sixth grade math class at Samoset Middle School recently stepped outside of the classroom to observe fractal geometry in the environment. Students collected pinecones, leaves and other fragments of nature and compared these items to geometric shapes such as spirals and circles. They also observed symmetry and sequences including the Fibonacci Sequence.
Students then worked with Mr. Kreamer to demonstrate what they learned through art. They used their observations to produce pieces of art that are now on display outside the Samoset Middle School library.
