Today in class we used sticks and balls to build a structure that would cover the whole lab table. To conquer this task, our group began by creating individual structures that we eventually connected. From our individual structures we noticed that some patterns began to emerge. The most common pattern was that people tended to use the same color sticks when beginning their model. Another pattern that became evident was that people were building in an up-down form. A pattern is a design that occurs more than once. Patterns develop in all different shapes, forms and sizes. Some patterns are more visible than others depending where they are. In other words, a pattern is a recurring characteristic or trait. In terms of nature, this is where patterns originate. From the patterns on the fur of an animal to the patterns molecules form. It almost gives nature a structure and a form. Patterns are what keeps nature in tact and gives it a seemingly clear perspective. Many of the patterns that humans believe they created are actually replicas from the outside world.
All patterns are derived from nature. From the patterns on the fur of an animal to the patterns molecules form. It almost gives nature a structure and a form. Patterns are what keeps nature in tact and gives it a seemingly clear perspective. Patterns develop in evolution as each new generation of species is based upon the previous one, continuing the different characteristics and patterns of each ancestor. After a few minutes of working on our structure, we noticed a pattern forming. The vast majority of our group used one ball to connect two sticks and made sure that there were not any straight lines. Also, half of our group used one color for all their sticks and the other half used random colors in general. Patterns sometimes emerge because people are used to doing things a certain way and don’t change their habits in order to maintain some type of control and comfort. For example, in this lab the majority of our group members used one ball to connect two sticks because it was a lot simpler and less time consuming.
