Shapes, Lines, and Patterns

The second session of Adventures in Math Explorations was a blast!  We had a lot of fun with shapes, lines, and patterns.

The activities included studying the work of Mondrian and creating a piece using the same geometrical features.  One student loved Mondrian’s use of parallel and perpendicular lines.  I was a sucker for color and the electrical tape.  (This was inspired by http://theplayfulparents.com/2012/05/wysiwyg-wednesday-piet-mondrian-math-art-geometry/)

 

 

Another popular activity was building with pattern blocks.  Who can resist creating a city with those bright colored blocks!

Geometry is everywhere and so much fun!
