Sequences and art
Sequences and art explores the concept of a math sequence in a playful setting. Participants will create drawings with markers, water colors and/or structures made of cardboard or wood that follow the behavior of a mathematical sequence. The emphasis will be on the study of right triangles that emerge from the construction of these figures. If applicable (according to age) participants will explore perimeter and area as the sequence progresses. At the end of the course the participants will able to generate their own artistic creations with a sequence of their own. Older participants will be able to understand the algebraic behavior of the perimeters and areas.
Define a mathematical sequence, regular polygons vs irregular, midpoint and right triangles.
Calculate areas and perimeters of right triangles.
Observe and reflect on patterns created and predict behavior.
Create an original drawing or sculpture using the concept of sequence.
For younger audiences, no previous experience is needed. For 16 years and older, measurement skills, basic math operations and basic knowledge of perimeter and area is required.
AGE RANGE: 6 years and older.
TIME DURATION: 2 or 4 hours, depending on age and depth desired.
