## Graphic Designer Creates A Mathematical Way Of Reading The Alphabet

Graphic designer Mark Gonyea, who previously explored a new way of counting, has a new project that gives the alphabet a mathematical reinterpretation.

‘Letters by the Number’ takes the 26 letters of the alphabet and multiplies them according to their numeric placement. For example, ‘A’ is a single ‘A’ while ‘B’ is two ‘Bs’, and ‘Z’ is a series of 26 interconnected ‘Zs’.
Gonyea adds visual oomph to the series by having each design correspond to a different color; red numbers can be squared, blue numbers can be divided by three, and orange numbers are multiples of five.

Via Beth Dichter
Beth Dichter's curator insight,

Are you looking for good practice and ideas (and pedagogy) in the area of mathematics? If so check out the first newsletter from Great Math Teaching Ideas which you may download as a pdf from this website. This issue provides a range of links including:

* Diagnostic questions - a website that provides you with questions to help you identify and address key misconceptions

* Visual Patterns - a site that provides you with 116 patterns that your students may work with to help learn how to create equations

* Numberphile - a great site to find math videos

Additional items are in the pdf.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight,

Here is a great visual containing some good ideas for lower school classes - along with the websites to check out. If you click on the image and load the webpage, the links become clickable.

Gemma Schormann's curator insight,

I agree! Math really needs to be taught better!
