Quadrivium The Four Classical Liberal Arts of Number The quadrivium the classical curriculum comprises the four liberal arts of number, geometry, music, and cosmology It was studied from antiquity to the Renaissance as a Quadrivium The quadrivium plural quadrivia is the four subjects, or arts, taught after teaching the trivium.The word is Latin, meaning four ways, and its use for the four subjects has been attributed to Boethius or Cassiodorus in the th century Together, the trivium and the quadrivium comprised the seven liberal arts based on thinking skills , as distinguished from the practical arts such as The Hidden Geometry of Flowers Living Rhythms, Form and Professor Keith Critchlow is a well known lecturer and author He is a founder member of RILKO Research Into Lost Knowledge Organisation , a founder member and Director of Studies of Kairos and a founder member and President of the Temenos Academy. Geometry from Wolfram MathWorld Geometry is the study of figures in a space of a given number of dimensions and of a given type The most common types of geometry are plane geometry dealing with objects like the point, line, circle, triangle, and polygon , solid geometry dealing with objects like the line, sphere, and polyhedron , and spherical geometry dealing with objects like the spherical triangle and spherical polygon. Math History Timeline A Time line for the History of Mathematics Many of the early dates are approximates This work is under constant revision, so come back later Please report any errors to me at richardson math.wichita. Trivium The trivium is the lower division of the seven liberal arts and comprises grammar, logic, and rhetoric. The trivium is implicit in De nuptiis Philologiae et Mercurii On the Marriage of Philology and Mercury by Martianus Capella, but the term was not used until the Carolingian Renaissance, when it was coined in imitation of the earlier quadrivium The Universe may be a Mystery, but it s no Secret Constructing The Universe The Universe may be a Mystery, but it s not a Secret This website is a look at some interests of Michael S Schneider offered for your enjoyment and education Three Dimensional Design Syllabus jnevins Overview Three Dimensional Design seeks to expand your understanding of design theory as it relates to the dimensional world Working primarily in paper, bristol board, corregated board and fome core, we will explore concepts of modularity, sequence and series, relief, contour, structure and symmetry. The Greatest Mathematicians fabpedigree At some point a longer list will become a List of Great Mathematicians rather than a List of Greatest Mathematicians I ve expanded my original List of Thirty to an even Hundred, but you may prefer to reduce it to a Top Seventy, Top Sixty, Top Fifty, Top Forty or Top Thirty list, or even Top Twenty, Top Fifteen or Top Ten List.
