GEK1518 Mathematics in Art and Architecture, Homework 2.

Take five pictures of mathematically interesting objects around you. Write a brief description of each, indicating where you found it and what it is.

This homework has two purposes. First of all, I would like to create a web page with interesting pictures from Singapore. So I am hoping that you can help me find interesting items. Secondly, I want you to become more conscious of the world around you. I want to you start noticing all the interesting mathematical objects around you.

Please do this in your project groups. If your group contains X member, I expect at least 5 X pictures. Please submit both soft copy and hard copy.

You will be graded on how interesting and original I find your pictures. Just submitting the required numbers of pictures does not guarantee more than 1/10.
