Description: This page, by historians Tracy Lai and Ileana Leavans and mathematician Lawrence Morales at Seattle Central Community College, presents a course which incorporates anthropology, history, and art into math education. This course "provides a transcultural approach towards the understanding of the existing relationships between visual images, mathematics, and the written/spoken word." Here, visitors will find a course description, outcomes, activities and assignments, as well as some sample projects and reflections from instructors. It is an excellent starting point for educators looking to design a course which incorporates math across the curriculum.
