eeebeee 0 Report post Posted December 10, 2017 I'm trying to come up with topic for my SL Math IA. I am particularly interested in looking into concepts related to the 4th Dimension and non-Euclidian geometry but I'm having trouble coming up with ways to add calculations into my IA. In particular, I wanted to look at the use of non-Euclidian geometry in certain modern art pieces. Any help and guidance is greatly appreciated! Share this post Link to post Share on other sites

For non-Euclidean you can go into equations of quadratic surfaces. I would only do modern art if you can model the pieces and do some calculations. 4th dimension you can consider the four-vector and lorentz transformations in special relativity. Another idea is to compare projection of 4D onto 3D(or 2D) the way you project 3D onto 2D. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites
