flower math.

i went to the dentist today and they gave me flowers. it was nice, but kind of weird. now, i'm trying to study up a little bit before school starts. i'm practicing my medical calculations. math. i like flowers and i like math, so i was soo excited to see this article that combines the two!

the little flower school teachers wrote about the (intense) math behind their gorgeous arrangements. here are some of their diagrams:

i'm feeling too lazy to try and figure it all out, and my 3 carnations from the dentist would be hard to apply this trigonometry to. but something which includes both flowers and math makes my heart smile.
