Shapes, Lines, and Patterns
Posted on March 1, 2013 | By lauren
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!
