When mathematics and art meet in the classroom
Description by the speaker:
The lecture is describing various ways of teaching mathematical concepts in school using artistic activities. Mathematics and art have connections on many levels and using teaching strategies that combine those two disciplines gives remarkable results in the classroom. Illustrating mathematical concepts to students through art gives them an opportunity to think about mathematics from different perspectives that they used to. That is especially beneficial to students who are not motivated to learn mathematics.
In this lecture, I will share my experience, since I have applied art in my mathematical classroom for several years, and through many projects. Origami, art, poetry, or dance can be used to teach students geometry, algebra, or algorithms and during my lesson, you will find out how.
