Have you ever stopped to look and notice all the amazing shapes and patterns in the world around us?
Here I will tell you about a few of my favorite examples of math in nature in this series.
One of nature's geometric wonder is the Hexagon. A regular hexagon has 6 sides of equal length, and this shape is seen again again in the world around us.
It's bee hive. look at this carefully. some thing interesting ......
yeah, it has tessellation of Hexagons.
the most common example of nature using the geometrycal shape HEXAGON.
When i think about it, making circles would not work too well. It would leave gaps in between. The worker bees could use triangle or square shapes for storage. Thoes wouldn't leave gaps, But the Hexagon is the strongest, most useful shape.
if we say in math, the geometry of this shape uses the least amount of material to hold the maximum weight,
Hexagon and Hexagonal shapes are also useful for building bridges, air planes and Cars. it gives material extra strength,
We usually think of Bubbles as round .
When many bubbles get pushed together on the surface of water and make up a raft bubble they take the shape of Hexagon.
While enjoying the Snow fall just try to notice the shape of Snowflakes.
You will see that every snowflake is also a hexagon in shape.
