Module Two Post Five ( 2 point perspective making prisms)

In this website, it has a slideshow provided. I prefer you check that out instead of what is written since the writing does not make much sense without diagrams to backup the points. The slideshow shows how drawings used to create prisms are used with 2 point perspective. Once the drawings made by this perspective technique, you can start to label each side in units so that you can  calculate surface area and volume.

So to sum up what I just described, 2 point perspective can be used to create prisms that our class used in the unit we just covered, surface area and volume. Obviously, the way this type of perspective drawing is used has math sewn into the process. Not to mention 2 point perspective has lots of uses: for art and math.


Module Two Post One (two point perspective in math)

For this post, I decided I could show my own knowledge that my art teacher has taught me about two point perspective. So, I am not using a website. I learnt that everything has to follow the mathematical rules, or else the perspective will look wonky. First of all, whenever you are drawing you need a ruler. If you dont have this essential item, this will make the lines uneven and some lines might not be the same length.

An example in which this type of drawing is used is in the typical 3D diagrams we have used a lot in our surface area and volume unit.

This picture is created using the tecniques for two point perspective. However you can draw it by hand without structure, but by doing so, it will not be correct in art and math terms. If you have taken the time to look into my older posts, you can examine what the stucture and rules of drawing 3D shapes are.

Hockey takes advantage of one of the most precious liquids in the universe, water. Water is used as ice in it’s solid form. A hockey rink is 200 feet in length and 85 fee wide, therefore takes around 10,600 gallons of water to fill to about an inch. However, water expands when solidified, thats why some pipes break. This is how zamboni’s play a huge roll in the process of maintaining ice. It first removes first layer of ice, then puts new coat of water after finished. Therefore removing solids/refurnish ice before next period. This will be helpful when looking at the rink and it’s design. An amazing source of information!
