Dilations



Dilations in Math, Art, and Science

Historically, dilations have been fundamentally indispensable in the development of
cultures around the world. The Greeks for example, without dilations would have merely
been a bunch of homeless philosophers instead of the brilliant architects they were. In
this paper Iíll discuss the uses and the history of dilations.

Dilations have long been used in the world, both past and present. Early examples include
Greek, Roman, and other ancient cultures using dilations to accomplish various complex
engineering feats. Overseers would commonly sit a set distance from a construction site,
and a pole of some sort with a fixed length was placed in front of them. Because of this
layout, the engineers were allowed to see both length and height (if desired) of the
specified building or construction.

Artists also commonly utilized the use of simple dilations to make scaled and accurate
artwork in the 1400 and 1500ís. Even today, you see dilations in use. For instance, a
picture of the globe, or a map of a particular area can be magnified many times, creating
dilation (see the example on the visual board.) On a golf course, you might look at the
flagpole at the end of the course to get a fairly accurate sense of the distance from you
