Stained Glass Art Analysis

In Mrs. Myers Honors Math class we started an assignment called The Stained Glass Art Project. We started off by watching a video on artistic choice that talked about color choices, lines, forms, shapes, textures, value, and space. After that, we were all given the same equations and were told to make points out of them. We chose 0, 2, 4, and 6 for the x-axis and we kept them the same for all the eleven equations. Before we plotted the points we had to figure out where our origin and scale factor would be, then we had to draw our x and y-axis. After that, we had to figure out the spacing on our x and y-axis line. We decided that on both of the lines our spacing would be one inch. After that, we plotted the points on a big, blank piece of paper…show more content…
Covey, “Fractured Emotions”, and “ll Punto Debole”. For “Fractured Emotions I was not told the scale factor, but I know that the scale was in inches. For “ Strength Lies in Differences, Not in Similarities” I was not told the scale factor, but the y-axis scale was in centimeters and the x-axis scale was in inches. For “ll Punto Debole” the scale factor is 1 inch. The chevron becomes elongated when the scale of the y-axis is large and the scale of the x-axis is small because the y-axis has to do with height and the x-axis has to do with length. The chevron becomes short and wide when the scale of the x-axis is large and the scale of the y-axis is small. The chevron becomes proportionate when the x and y-axis have the same scale. The larger the scale factor the larger the chevron is and the smaller the scale factor the smaller the chevron is. The slope shows if the line is going to be positive or negative and how steep it is, so the scale factor helps make that shape congruent, smaller, or larger over the y-axis that is formed by the lines from the slope. Scale factor affects y-intercept because it affects the point by making the x and y-axis number larger or
