**[Abstract]**

Hello, My name is Dylan Fundalinski and for my 380 talk, I will be talking about the Golden Ratio and how it appears in certain types of architecture from various places around the world. I will go over what the Golden Ratio is, and calculate an example of how you would find it. I will also briefly go over some golden “shapes” such as the golden rectangle and triangle as some of the calculations for the buildings use those to help find some ratios. Given that these calculations are fairly simple, there is no need for prior knowledge of anything except for some algebra and geometry. Hope to see everyone on Wednesday.

Hey, Dylan. This was a great talk. A few years ago, someone did a 380 talk on the Golden Ratio and the Fibonacci sequence, but it was about music. Maybe that’s worth looking into, since you’re interested in this stuff. In my opinion, the best part of this was actually getting to see the pictures of these structures. Man, it’d be so cool to discover that these builders actually knew they were using the golden ratio. Anyway, great work! I’ll be out of here by the time your 381 and 480 talks happen, but I’m certain you’ll do an excellent job!

Hi Dylan! Great job on this presentation! Getting through your first seminar is a huge accomplishment. I had such a hard time trying to understand LATEX and trying to figure out how to create nice-looking presentations with it. The formatting can be so tricky! Not only that, but I remember feeling so lost as to what would be good topics for presenting on. I think talking about the Golden Ratio and its applications in architecture was an excellent choice. It made for a very interesting presentation, and was the perfect length. Congrats! You are now officially a seasoned professional at giving seminar presentations. Good luck as you continue on with them!

Hey, Dylan. Great job on this presentation! You did a good job of defining what the Golden Ratio is? Although I have no knowledge of architecture in a sense of research fields. But it was worth knowing it. You did a good job of describing the Golden Ratio and the functions of the Golden Ratio. Although this was your first presentation, you did a good job. Good luck with the rest of the presentation and looking forward to your second talks.

Great job on your presentation. I have seen the golden ratio before in other class, but we never really had an in depth discussion about it. It was nice to learn more about this number and the applications of it. I really appreciate how you included pictures in your presentation when you were talking about how it is used in architecture. It makes it so much more easier to understand rather than trying to come up with a picture in my head. Good luck on your next seminars.
