Mathematical Art Presented by the American Mathematical Society

Mathematical Art Presented by the American Mathematical Society | Maths Issues | Scoop.it

"The connection between mathematics and art goes back thousands of years. Mathematics has been used in the design of Gothic cathedrals, Rose windows, oriental rugs, mosaics and tilings. Geometric forms were fundamental to the cubists and many abstract expressionists, and award-winning sculptors have used topology as the basis for their pieces. Dutch artist M.C. Escher represented infinity, Möbius bands, tessellations, deformations, reflections, Platonic solids, spirals, symmetry, and the hyperbolic plane in his works.

 

"Mathematicians and artists continue to create stunning works in all media and to explore the visualization of mathematics--origami, computer-generated landscapes, tesselations, fractals, anamorphic art, and more."

Provides an insight into the cross integration between Maths and Arts. This is a great link, for a foray into higher order thinking, and visualisation. Could be a valuable resource for upper primary, in linking their mathematical learning to a more meaning context (in linking to their experiences of art in nature and in man-made objects around them) –


There are links to galleries & exhibitions – which could translate into a class excursion.

Hope they are useful. Peace.

Good videos about math concepts. I don't know if I could use most of them in first grade, but many of them can be used for education!

(Phys.org) —Mathematics is, in essence, an artificial language for precisely articulating theories about the physical world. Unlike natural language, however, translating different classes of mathematics can be difficult at best.

This is fairly heavy stuff on the borderland of quantum computing and philosophy of mathematics. If it wasnt for the authors excelent academic credentials it I would have filed it under alternate theries of reality/(crank). But it does deserve deeper reading and perhaps a further chase into the literature.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, May 24, 2013 7:48 AM

This is an interesting article on some Earth-Sun relationships that challenges the dominant north-centered normative view of how to think about our planet.  My favorite tidbit of information: "The velocity of the Earth’s rotation varies depending on where you stand: 1,000 mph at the Equator versus almost zero at the poles. That means that the fastest sunrises and sunsets on the planet occur on the Equator, and centrifugal and inertial forces are also much greater there. "

Definitly changed my way of thinking. also this brings up the many flaws with pre geospatial desinged maps. cartographers could push their own agenda to make their country or area look more promient than it actually is. also another prime example of something that has been taken as fact for many years (nobody questions a world map) and turns out to have some flaws
