Spiraling squares - compass and straight edge


Can you see the many spirals in this design? Students calculate the size of each increasing round of squares and consider what sort of spirals these must be.

Working with a little mathematical art is a great way to end your school year. Polar graph paper with initial round of squares: PolarPaper+FirstSquares.pdf

For Adventurer members we have an editable Word docx, solutions to the activity, instructions for creating the design with compass and ruler, and a blank spiraling square picture for simply coloring.
