Title: Art and Algebra
Url: http://www.mac3.matyc.org/art/art_SFCC.htm
Creator: Wilson, Cynthia
Publisher: American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges
Description: Created by artist Cynthia Wilson at Spokane Falls Community College, this lesson combines art, geometry, and algebra to create two-dimensional models for abstract paintings. On this page, visitors will find a very brief description, along with materials for creating an in-class project complete with objectives, materials, procedures, and a handout for students. In it, students are asked to analyze the use of geometric shapes in the works of Piet Mondrian and Frank Lloyd Wright and create their own compositions by tiling. It is an excellent resource, which allows educators to illustrate to students the importance of mathematics in other disciplines.
