A Mathematical High Point  Poster 
 a MATHEMATICAL HIGH point
TAIPEI 101 has 101 floors above ground and five floors below. It was the first building in the world to be taller than half a kilometer and, from 2004 to 2010, it was the tallest building in the world. Taipei 101 set several records, including having the world’s fastest elevator.
Using the building statistics given on the poster, challenge your students to calculate how far they can see from the top; how long it would take for the elevator to go from the ground floor to the 89th floor; or find the angle of depression from a particular spot on the roof. (Solutions provided)

Fibonacci Stays Here Poster 
 Fibonacci stays here
THE GOLDEN RATIO is also referred to as the golden section, the golden mean, the golden proportion, the extreme and mean ratio, and the divine proportion. It has been used to ensure beauty and balance in art, architecture, music and design for centuries.
Here, the ubiquitous Fibonacci sequence shows up where it is least expected: in the logo of a Chicago hotel. Your students can discover how to construct and measure a golden rectangle, determine where the golden ratio appears in the pentagon formed by a 5pointed starfish, and apply graphs of polar equations. (Solutions provided.)

STARRY NIGHT At first glance, James Yamada’s Our Starry Night, is a black, 12foottall sculpture with 1900 unlit colored LED lights on its two flat surfaces. As one passes through the sculpture’s rectangular passageway, however, patterns of light appear triggered by a metal detector hidden inside the structure’s casing.
Have your students seeing stars as they explore combinatorics, ellipses, matrices, and parametric equations stemming from this investigation of a publicly displayed sculpture featuring geometric star shapes. (Solutions provided.)
