The Mathematics of Art 

The link between mathematics and art can be realized by considering artists like Leonardo DaVinci and M. C. Escher, as well as through the golden ratio and the Fibonacci sequence. 

Math in the Kitchen 

The mathematics involved in cooking is very broad and includes making conversions, working with numbers in recipes, operations with fractions, and estimating time and cost, among other things. 

Math in the Squad Car 

While on patrol, police officers need to apply their math skills for a variety of tasks. 

M. C. Escher  Impossible Mathematical Art 

Playing with impossible spaces, Escher became an artist famous for abstract pieces that mystify the mind and play with our perception. Using his naked eye and basic art tools, he was mathematically correct, to the millimeter. 

Medicine and Math 

Doctors and nurses use math every day, doing routine tasks such as writing prescriptions or administering medication to patients. Math can also be seen in more advanced medical procedures such as CAT scans and the treatment of kidney stones. 

Music, Math, and Patterns 

We use math to read music, to describe and define music, and to create beauty witin music. Math and music relate through patterns. 

Navigation 

Two successful navigation systems known as Loran (Long Range Navigation) and GPS (Global Positioning System) are based on the principles of the hyperbola and the circle, as well as the idea of trilateration. 

The Police 

Officers in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) use a variety of math concepts everyday in their line of work. They use math while on patrol and more specifically in accident reconstruction and crime scene investigation. 

Ratios and Proportions Used in Medicine 

Nurses particularly use proportions on a regular basis when following doctor's orders. 

Reading Notes in Musical Pieces 

Time and fractions are important elements to understand when reading music notes. 

Suspension Bridges 

Suspension Bridges encompass many mathematical concepts including its parabolic shape, the length and measurements of the bridge, the forces acting on the bridge, and elements of weather. 

Symmetry in Design 

Symmetry includes more than just basic line symmetry and can be seen in frieze patterns, chaos, and more complex forms of symmetry including rotational, spiral, cylindrical, chiral, similarity, and translational. Finding these different patterns requires mathematical transformations. 

Understanding Prescriptions and Medicine 

When writing prescriptions and ordering medication for patients, doctors must know how to complete accurate conversions, understand percentages and geometric sequences, and work with ratios. 

Using Math to Find Your Body Mass Index (BMI) 

Although there are advanced machines that digitally find a person's BMI, you can also find it manually using an equation.
