There are some great articles on fractals and architecture here. - Science This link opens in a new windowSearch for concepts here such as "Fibonacci Sequence", "Golden Ratio", "Golden Rectangle", "Fractals", "Vitruvius".

You can also search for terms such as "patterns in nature" or "symmetry in nature".

- Describing Nature with MathHow can you describe a tree or cloud, a rippled pond or swirling galaxy using numbers and equations?
- Golden RatioThe "golden ratio" is a unique mathematical relationship, and easy to spot in the natural world.
- The Nature of DesignThere is an ongoing debate among graphic designers, mathematicians and scientists about whether the Golden Ratio in relation to design is a myth. But there is plenty of evidence, not only in nature but in created design, that proves the ratio to be a solid tool for us designers.
- Hidden Beauty of MathematicsMathematics is everywhere. It is in the objects we create, in the works of art we admire. Although we may not notice it, mathematics is also present in the nature that surrounds us, in its landscapes and species of plants and animals, including the human species. But how does this happen?

- What is a Fractal?Fractals are complex, never-ending patterns created by repeating mathematical equations. Yuliya, a undergrad in Math at MIT, delves into their mysterious properties and how they can be found in technology and nature.
- Can One Mathematical Model Explain All Patterns In Nature?All patterns in nature might be describable using this mathematical theory. How did Alan Turing influence how we see the natural world?
- Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man of mathWhat's so special about Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man? With arms outstretched, the man fills the irreconcilable spaces of a circle and a square -- symbolizing the Renaissance-era belief in the mutable nature of humankind.
