Finding the Golden Ratio in Durham Cathedral
This video resource from Teachers TV is presented by Steve Humble. Filmed in Durham Cathedral, it investigates the mathematics used by master masons and the links with classical architecture. Steve investigates the proportions in Durham Cathedral and discovers ratios that are very similar to the golden ratio. Students are then invited to find examples of the golden ratio within their school or local church. The video uses Northern Architecture's Making Architecture Count project for schools, which develops resources that bring Key Stage Three Mathematics to life through exploring some of the region’s greatest buildings.
