Abstract.

The square root of the Golden Section, \( \surd \phi \), is at times not given its due in discussions regarding the Golden Section. This is an unfortunate situation because its geometric properties provide us with a unique and rarely applied design tool. In this column, geometer Mark Reynolds focuses on the \( \surd \phi \) rectangle and its abilities to create an exciting tiling, R-Tiles.

Keywords.
