Do art and math have anything in common? How do artists and architects use math to create their works? In these lessons, students will explore the intersection of math and art in the works of two artists and one architect for whom mathematical concepts (lines, angles, two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional polyhedra, fractions, ratios, and permutations) and geometric forms were fundamental.

The lesson begins by introducing Olympics as the unit theme. The purpose of this lesson is to introduce students to the techniques of engineering problem solving. Specific techniques covered in the lesson include brainstorming and the engineering design process. The importance of thinking out of the box is also stressed to show that while some tasks seem impossible, they can be done. This introduction includes a discussion of the engineering required to build grand, often complex, Olympic event centers.

Perseus is an evolving digital library, engineering interactions through time, space, and language. Our primary goal is to bring a wide range of source materials to as large an audience as possible. We anticipate that greater accessibility to the sources for the study of the humanities will strengthen the quality of questions, lead to new avenues of research, and connect more people through the connection of ideas.

Students will examine architectural structures in paintings and how they are used, also considering the art elements, composition, emphasis, color, and light. They will also study the relationship between the built environment and nature in the paintings. Students then complete activities in which they select words and phrases to describe a painting's mood and write related poetry. Then they create drawings and write related poetry. As an optional activity, students may construct their own "camera obscura" and create a drawing.

In this course the student will study the architecture of Ancient Rome beginning with its origins in the eighth century BC and continuing through the fourth century AD with the move of the Roman capital to Constantinople. The course will familiarize you with the major building methods and styles used in Roman architecture as well as interior decoration. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to: demonstrate an understanding of the general arc of the history of ancient Rome; identify the major historical events in ancient Roman history and the emperors who presided during these events; demonstrate an understanding of the vital role that imagery, especially architecture, played in Rome's political and cultural world; identify the origins of various styles that the Romans borrowed and explain how they were re-purposed; identify the major stylistic developments from Rome's origins to its demise; identify the styles that were popular under the rule of different emperors, and explain how those styles relate to a political ideology; discuss the different building techniques used by the Romans and explain how the development of new techniques changed the appearance of Roman architecture; demonstrate an understanding of the different provinces of the Roman Empire and the ways in which regional differences are apparent in architecture; identify specific monuments and be able to provide basic identifying information: title, date, location, architects (if known), patron; explain the importance of Roman architecture in shaping the architecture of later Western civilizations.

Students are introduced to brainstorming and the design process in problem solving as it relates to engineering. They perform an activity to develop and understand problem solving with an emphasis on learning from history. Using only paper, straws, tape and paper clips, they create structures that can support the weight of at least one textbook. In their first attempts to build the structures, they build whatever comes to mind. For the second trial, they examine examples of successful buildings from history and try again.

Welcome to the St. Louis Virtual City Project. This Regional History Project ...

Welcome to the St. Louis Virtual City Project. This Regional History Project utilizes interactive web technologies to explore the history of the City of St. Louis and the St. Louis region. To help you explore St. Louis you will first need to be sure that your computer is equipped with the browser plug-in Cortona. It can be downloaded for free from Parallel Graphics (just follow the on screen directions). The website is best viewed in the most recent version of Internet Explorer browser and at screen resolution 1024 x 768. To begin your tour of St. Louis, simply choose a year by clicking the timeline menu bar on the left side of the main page (currently 1850 and 1950 are active). As you enter your selected decade, a three-dimensional model of downtown St. Louis will appear on the left side of your screen (if it does not appear, use the link above to download Cortona). By clicking on the various buildings, people and objects in the landscape, you will be able to access information about their history, which will appear on the right side of your screen. You can use your mouse or the arrow keys to help you move through the Virtual City. The website is organized into districts. Each district contains a district home page; building pages containing addresses, construction and demolition dates, as well as information about the buildings importance in that decade; people pages for important public figures in the decade; and event pages detailing events in each building during the decade. Each event page is also linked to a perspectives page which lists primary documents from the time period. Chart a path of inquiry across space and time to discover how St. Louisans made history by reconstructing the city the around them.

The on-line game aims at teaching children how to build safer villages and cities against disasters. Children will learn playing how the location and the construction materials of houses can make a difference when disasters strike and how early warning systems, evacuation plans and education can save lives. Children are the future architects, mayors, doctors, and parents of the world of tomorrow, if they know what to do to reduce the impact of disasters, they will create a safer world. Each scenario takes between 10 and 20 minutes to play, depending on the disaster you are trying to prevent and your skill level. There are five scenarios to play, and each can be played on easy, medium or hard difficulty levels. The core audience is 9-16 year old children, but anyone can play and enjoy the game, and everyone will learn more about preventing disasters. This is a single player game, but groups of children in a classroom environment can play collaboratively and discuss the best course of action to take. Additional learning material for students and teachers is available in the ‘Information’ section of this web site.
