Mathematical beauty is most of the time enjoyed and appreciated by those who have knowledge mathematics. It can only be appreciated by the common person in tangible things or perhaps things that can be seen by the naked eye. Symmetry, tessellations, and patterns are several of the mathematical beauty who can be shared by math and non-math persons. Well, let’s add one more: bubbles.
The video above shows how to create soap bubbles polyhedra and other 3d shapes. Some of the polyhedra shown in the video above are tetrahedron, hexahedron, octahedron as well as some truncations. It also shows some strange behavior of bubbles when they are suspended in the air.
Enjoy watching and share the fun!
Pascal’s Triangle is a triangular array of numbers where each number on the “interior” of the triangle is the sum of the two numbers directly above it. It was named after French mathematician Blaise Pascal.
There are many interesting things about the Pascal’s triangle. In this post, we explore seven of these properties. » Read more
Symmetry is considered by many as a reflection of beauty and perfection. A symmetric object is an object where we can place a line such that the images on both sides of the line mirror each other.
The geometric shapes in the first figure are symmetric. As shown, we can draw a line — in fact more than one line — to show symmetry. The equilateral triangle has three lines of symmetry, the square has four, and the circle has infinitely many. » Read more
