Spirals in Nature

Recently, I have written a couple of posts on mathematics found in nature and I just wanted to continue with this topic. For today I decided to write more about some interesting spirals that can be found in nature. 1. Logarithmic Spiral - generally speaking, this is a self-similar spiral curve. This property is used often... Continue Reading →

Visiting Edinburgh

I believe that this holiday had the theme "math in nature". During these weeks, I found myself looking for mathematical patterns in nature. Anything from symmetry, spirals, fractals or any other patterns have been part of my "research" project this summer. I don't have an explanation, it wasn't something planned, it just happened. So, I... Continue Reading →

Symmetry and Butterflies

Hope you are enjoying the summer. Recently I moved to Edinburgh and I have started visiting random things. One of the first things I wanted to see was the Edinburgh Butterfly & Insect World. Butterflies are some of my favorite creatures ever. Beside their incredible beauty, I find them extremely interesting (especially the process caterpillar... Continue Reading →

Quotes by Einstein

On the 14th of March we celebrated both Pi Day and Albert Einstein's birthday. In the past I have written a couple of posts about Pi (More Pi and  It's Pi Weekend), so I thought it was just right this year to talk about Einstein. Instead of writing about what he has accomplished, I thought... Continue Reading →

Great Math in “Doctor Strange”

I finally had the time to go and watch the movie Doctor Strange and I was mesmerized by the special effects they used and how they used some great mathematical techniques there. When I say this, it doesn't refer to just some random geometrical patterns, but at great interesting fractals (Mandlebrot sets) and some of Escher's art... Continue Reading →

Different Circles

I have not posted about an artist in a long time and I thought I should search for something new. So, I found this Italian designer Giuseppe Randazzo of Novastructura, who released a series of generative digital “sculptures” that depicted carefully organized pebbles and rocks on a flat plane.  The series of sculptures is titled Stone...

First Week of School

School started on 15th August in Scotland and on that day I have also started my first year of Secondary Teacher. I think you can imagine how nervous I was on that day and how scared I was about everything. Now that the second week is starting tomorrow, I cannot say that I am better,... Continue Reading →

Geometry & Art

During my stay in Romania this summer, just before the wedding, I was nicely walking randomly on the streets of my home town when I discover some interesting drawings just outside an art exhibition. From far away it looked like some random colors on a piece of paper, but when I got closer I was... Continue Reading →
