Intended for use in the elementary art classroom, this gallery highlights the symbiotic relationship between math and art. Through examining this relationship, students will gain an understanding of its subtle complexity and importance, enabling them to make more deliberate creative choices while recognizing and appreciating choices made by fellow artists.
Art educators may discuss concepts such as: Rotation, symmetry, tessellations, patterns, the golden ratio, shapes and their interactions (additive, subtractive, etc.), fractions, composition, and proportions (relationships, i.e. greater than, less than, etc.). These concepts may fuel a successful practical design unit.
