Art of Mathematics “another side of mathematics”

02 Nov

Who said mathematics is a boring uninteresting subject which has no sense of art and beauty??? In this occasion, i would like to show you another side of mathematics. Mathematics is an interesting subject which can be seen in nature and can be used to express a perons’ feeling and as a tool/media to create a beautiful art.

1. Batik + Mathematics + Technology = Batik Farctal

Nowadays, Indonesia has its new creation of Batik called Batik Fraktal/ractal which is a combination between Batik, Technology and Mathematics. Three genius bussinessman from Bandung, Indonesia ( Muhammad Lukman, Nancy Margried Panjaitan, dan Yun Hariadi ) are the inventor of batik fraktal. After doing long research since 2007, at last they launched a batik with continuous geometry design (http://nasional.kompas.com/read/2008/09/10/09060274/mempopulerkan.batik.dengan.hitungan.matematika). This images below are some kinds of batik fraktal.

                                  

2. Fraction in a Justin Bieber’ Song: “Common Denominator”

Beside in batik or fashion, mathematics especially fraction also can be found in one of the famaous singer Justin Bieber’s song, which title is “Common Denominator”. In this song, we can find mathematics vocab/term related to fraction such as: fraction, equation, common denominator, and one half. Check the song🙂

Lyric of common denominator: (copied from http://lirik.kapanlagi.com/artis/justin_bieber/common_denominator)

oleh: Justin Bieber

just a fraction of your love
fills the air
And I fall in love with you
All over again, oh
You’re the light that feeds the sun
In my world
I’d face a thousand years of pain for my girl
Out of all the things in life that i could fear
The only thing that would hurt me, uh
Is if you weren’t here?, ohChorus:
I don’t want to go back to just being one half of the equation
do You understand what I’m sayin’?
Girl, without you I’m lost
Can’t faces this compass at heart
Between me and love,
You’re the common denominator
oh, oh , ohhh, oh
you’re the Common denominator
oh, yeahh, woaBefore your love was low
playing we’re just my height,
We chase the game that would put
My cot in the side, aye
when Broken heart rise up to say,
love is a lie
You and I would stand to be multiplied, yea

Out of all things in life that I could fear, yeah
The only thing that would hurt me is if you weren’t here,woa

Chorus:
I don’t wanna go back to just being one half of the equation
do You understand what I’m sayin’? (do you understand)
Girl, without you I’m lost
Can’t faces this compass at heart
Between me and love,
You’re the common denominator
oh, oh , ohhh, oh
you’re the Common denominator
oh, yeahh, woa

i can’t imagine life without your touch
and Every kisses that you give me, fills me up
And to all the heart aching
Jealous females hate it
I’m a hold it down for you
You, woa, oh, woa
You’re the common denominator
oh yeah woa

i don’t wanna go back to just being one half of the equation
do You understand what I’m sayin’? (do you understand)
Girl, without you I’m lost
Can’t face this compass at heart
Between me and love,
You’re the common denominator
oh, oh , ohhh, oh
you’re the Common denominator
oh, yeahh, woa

Just a fraction of your love fills the air
And I fall in love with you all over again, yeah

3. Poem of Mathematics

RUMAH SEGI EMPAT

OLEH: MUTIARA HIKMAH
(Juara I Lomba Tulis Puisi Matematika 2008 UNSRI Kategori Sekolah Dasar)

Disuatu simpang empat
Dipemukiman yang rapat
Terdapat rumah segi empat
Pintu dan jendelanya berwarna coklat

Di halaman trapesium hijau nan luas
Tumbuh lingkaran tanaman hias
Ada juga tanaman pisang, rambutan, dan nanas
Diameter kebahagiaan terukir disebuah senyuman puas

Dalam rumah sederhana segi empat
Terdapat kamar bujur sangkar sebanyak empat
Keliling kamarku tambahkan setiap setiap sisinya yang berjumlah empat
Luas kamarku adalah hasil dari sisi kuadrat

Genting tanah liat menghiasi atap rumahku
Tampak bangunan segi tiga dari depan rumahku
Keliling segi tiga tambahkan setiap sisi atap rumahku
Luas segi tiga alas kali tinggi dibagi dua sisi atap rumahku

Terdapat sebuah lukisan pemandangan yang terpajang
Di ruang tamuku yang berbentuk persegi panjang
Bila ditambahkan setiap sisi kita dapatkan keliling persegi panjang
Luas persegi panjang hasil perkalian lebar dan panjang

Wahai kawan akulah penghuni rumah segi empat
Aku ingin belajar dengan cermat dan giat
Agar memperoleh ilmu yang bermanfaat
Dan menjadi orang berguna bagi masyarakat
