    Ratios?

    Find a life-size 'head shot' of a celebrity - a rather easy task using the internet (you might have to resize it in the beginning).
    Find the measurements, in ratio form - similar to how it was done in the class, of the celebrities facial features/structures.
    Does the celebrity have any structures or features that when compared or written as a ratio seem to be close to the golden ratio?

    How in the world would I do this?

    Seems pretty straight foward, this is the golden ratio  \frac{1+\sqrt{5}}{2} \approx 1.618

    Now find some dimensions, ie length of face divided by length of chin to eyeline

    Start by asking your instructor. This appears to be the sort of task designed to get you to do some research.
