The Math and Science Behind the Architecture of the Columns of Monticello.
For this exercise, we will focus on several mathematical and scientific properties of the doric order columns that adorn the porticos at Monticello. This is a two part activity for two subjects. One part will be given to the AP Environmental Science class and one part will be given to the math class during the Right Triangle Trigonometry Unit. These lessons can be done in just the math class, just the AP Environmental Science class, or given to both classes.
