All Morphed Up is an investigation of the fascinating phenomenon of Mirror (or reflective) Anamorphosis; the Giant Cylinder Challenge invites students to imagine that they are the Exhibit Designer for a museum installation about mirror anamorphosis. They need to design images that will be morphed and resolved in a giant (2m X .75m) cylinder. In order to do that, they must first use their knowledge of geometry and law of reflection to solve a complex problem: How wide must an image be in order to be comfortably viewed by museum guests of any height?
Using Geometry, Algebra and GeoGebra, students work through a series of tasks that allow students to answer the question.
Student worksheets and detailed teacher pages included.
