Hi Betty.Let's practice together. :)

NG: P1S2, question it did not memtion humans were using geometry well or not, maybe Yes! So i think the answer should be NG
YES:P2S2:geometric patterns=mathematical objects
NO:P2S2:question it memtioned artists do not realise, but P2S2 showed architects use geometry for serveral seasons… which it means those people know what exactly they’re doing!
NO:P3S2 i think use of size is not correct, should be use of eye???not sure…

1. Yes - The earliest recorded beginnings of geometry can be traced to ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt in the 2nd millennium BC.Its over 2000 years now as we are in 2020 AD.

2. Not Given - to decorate buildings with mathematical objects such as tessellations; and to meet environmental goals, such as to minimise wind speeds around the bases of tall buildings.

Nothing is pecified about using decoration in religious buildings, though its used for some otehr purpose.

3. Not given - In the graphic arts, geometry can be seen in the use of perspective, which may be described as the approximate representation, generally on a flat surface (such as paper), of an image as it is seen by the eye.

It doesnt talk about artist do it knowingly or unknowingly, so not given.

4. True - The two most characteristic features of perspective are that objects appear smaller as their distance from the observer increases, and that they are subject to foreshortening, meaning that an object's dimensions along the line of sight appear shorter than its dimensions across the line of sight.

With my methods at least one answe correct.

1.No
2.Not Given
3.Not Given
4.Yes

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

1. Yes

This one was a bit tricky, but the answer must be 'yes': the 2nd millenium BC would be between 3000 and 4000 years ago, which is "well over" (a lot more than) two thousand years ago.

2. Not given

3. Not given

4. Yes

'the use of size to imply distance'
= 'representation... of an image as it is seen by the eye... objects appear smaller as their distance from the observer increases'

FROM SIMON

This page gives you the dates of the 2nd millenium BC:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2nd_millennium_BC

1 yes - '' 2nd millennium BC'' meaning well over two thousand years.

HI SIMON

I have an objection to the fourth answer.I think the statement should be "the use of distance to imply size" for an answer to be true. Otherwise it seems to be false. "Objects appear smaller" - this is what happens when "their distance from the observer increases", so here the indicator is distance, not size. Because changing distance manipulates the perception of size, not the other way around. Please correct me, if i`m mistaken.

I overthought the question. It hurts me

Hi Simon,

Based on my understanding the answer to question 4 can be F, because I think "objects appear smaller as their distance from the observer increases" means "the use of distance to imply the size" and NOT "the use of size to imply distance". Can you please clarify? Thank you in advance.

I got the first 3 correct, but was surprised to see 4th answer wrong..

1.No
2.NG
3.NG
4.Yes
