The use of primitives and polygons in design for architecture
The Final Project is a stand-alone presentation that you create and post. The presentation must have a quantitative aspect; it must include information of a quantitative nature derived from this course as a first source. The goal of this project is to exercise and improve your ability to work with and present quantitative information within the context of a final paper related to the course content. Your grade for this project does not simply depend on demonstrating equation-solving skills (the final exam will assess equation-solving skills). Critical thinking, creativity, the generation of original quantitative material (text, photos, graphics, computer-generated media of any kind), and the use of quantitative communication to support a focused thesis or research project are the most highly valued outcomes for this project. There are three principle criteria for this presentation: 1. That you spend some time furthering your current number-related knowledge, understanding and skills 2. That you present your knowledge and understanding, and/or demonstrate your skills in a professional manner 3. Most importantly, that you either focus on a quantitative topic, or employ quantitative material in your presentation. Quantitative material includes any use of numbers, physical units, conversion of units, charts or diagrams (preferably that you make) labeled with the proper units and numbers, scientific notation or powers of 10, binary numbers, ratios and proportions, linear or logarithmic scales, any relevant formulas, statistics, or calculations. The class was about algebra and geometry. The essay is to relate that to polygons in architecture.
