Zome

Systems builds upon the magic of the golden ratio.

Its

design reflects redundancy at many levels, a feature that

is

usually common to well-designed systems, and a feature

inherent

to anything mathematical.

As an

example, Zome sticks are both color and shape coded; a

fact

that makes this an excellent tool for teaching math

to

visually impaired students —

see Thinking

Of

Mathematics.

Redundancy can often be a

consequence of the same basic fact

manifesting itself when

viewed from different perspectives. As a

case in point, see

the number of ways that the golden ratio

manifests itself,

both within Zome, and more generally the wider

world we

live in.
