Frankenstein Ratio

Exploring Ratio

Using a measuring tape, recording sheet and Leonardo Da Vinci's Vitruvian man ratios, the children compared their own measurements to see if they had the same ratios. Once they had looked at themselves they also used these ratios to become a class of Dr Frankenstein's and create their own monster.


According to da Vinci, the Vitruvian Man possessed the following ratios: Ratio of height to arm span (1:1) Ratio of height to hand span (10:1) Ratio of height to the distance from the top of the head to the bottom of the chin (8:1)
