Curriculum - DA VINCI SCHOOL

# What we teach?

The Da Vinci school integrates the 7 Liberal Arts of the first school of higher education invented by Ancient Greece: The Quadrivium is all about number; geometry, music, astronomy and arithmetic, the Trivium about the word; grammar, rhetoric and logic. Primarily focussed on the Quadrivium, the subjects in our curriculum are intended to stimulate both, the logical and creative side of the brain to unlock our full potential.

## Geometry

Geometry is the expression of numbers in space and is related with distance, shape, size, and relative position of figures. The practise of Geometry builds the core of our teaching experience as it is a visual tool.

## Music

Music is more intangible than geometry and is experienced by our sense of hearing. At the foundation of music theory lies a mathematical construct that reveals strong similarity to geometry, expressed as numbers in time.

## Astronomy

The Ancient Greeks were always fascinated about the sky, where planets are rotating around their orbits in space-time. The laws of planetary bodies that are at play on large scales give us glimpses about a universal construct.

## Arithmetic

Numbers themselves are abstract, yet they are the foundation of everything. Uncovering the underlying code of reality leads us to a deep philosophical quest to answer some of the greatest questions about the Universe.

# New methodology

Merging the 7 Liberal Arts in their original form with the subjects and research of today, the Da Vinci school presents a unique approach to education. Everything is based on geometric thinking. In this way, all content has a slight twist of perception that helps to see the bigger picture. We have integrated many new concepts developed by In2Infinity in a format that is accessible for everyone.

### Geometry

For a solid foundation in geometry we will explore the properties of space from 2D to 5D. This includes the transformation of form, fractal geometry, inverse geometry, the Platonic and Archimedean Solids, the torus and hypercube.

### Mathematics

Unraveling the mystery of numbers such as Pi, the Golden and Silver Ratio, Root numbers, Fibonacci and Pandova numbers, the Plastic number, infinity and zero and learn to see the pattern of a universal code.

### The Arts

Get inspired and immerse yourself in the creation of art. Draw Mandalas and geometric designs while learning about colour theory, music and resonance. See the beauty and harmony of light and sound unfolding.

### Physics

From Quantum Physics to Astrophysics, discover the atomic structure, the nature of light, gravity and some of the most fundamental scientific laws and constants that describe our Universe.

### Chemistry

Comprehend the mechanisms of molecular bonding based on the nature of geometry and sound. This will shed new light on the structure of molecules and their behaviour in chemical reactions.

### Biology

From molecular biology to ecology, this field encompasses the bodily functions such as DNA, proteins, fats, ATP and immunity to the biogeochemical processes that power life on earth.

### Philosophy

Religious texts, philosophical thinking and spiritual practise come together to enhance our perception of who we are. With meditations, visualisations and energy work, we elevate our consciousness on an individual and global level.

### History

Today's scientific views on the world are based on the discoveries that have been made throughout the ages. Analyse theories as they were developed in the context of time and apply logic and reasoning (trivium) to gain a fresh perspective on existing data.
