Issue 2 articles include: The Dynamic Symmetry of The Plant How Dynamic Symmetry Was Discovered; The Dynamic Symmetry of The Human Figure For Advanced Students Lesson II; The Area Composition of The Rectangle so Far Considered; Geometrical Analysis of the Front Elevation of The Skull and Arithmetical Proof; Sources For The Study Of Dynamic Symmetry; A Simple Cooking Utensil As A Greek Masterpiece; The Elements of Dynamic Symmetry; Rhythmic Themes of The Whirling Square Rectangle; Root-Five Rectangles Within The Rectangle of The Whirling Squares and Arithmetical Analysis; Other Subdivisions of The Whirling Square Rectangle; Continuation of The Elements of The Root-Two Rectangle.
