Mathematical Art Presented by the American Mathematical Society

Mathematical Art Presented by the American Mathematical Society | Resources for primary Mathematics | 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."

 


Via Jim Lerman, BookChook
MsPedagogicalProwess's insight:

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.

3D Nets

3D Nets | Resources for primary Mathematics | Scoop.it
3D printable nets for the 5 platonic solids: tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron, and icosahedron. Simply cut out and make a 3d shape. Fun with maths.

MsPedagogicalProwess's insight:

A fun site with a lot of great resources for teaching about 3D objects and 2D shapes.  The worksheets are able to download in PDF.  I love this polygon song, because it’s fun, interactive and engaging:  http://vimeo.com/7226029

MsPedagogicalProwess's insight:

An excellent site developed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). There are hundreds of lesson plans, and interactive activities which are downloadable / printable for us in the classroom.  
 

If your classroom is tech savvy – the site facilitates the playing of strategy games against opponents, and other computers. Also contains some good mobile apps for both Apple & Androids.

The Nrich Maths Project Cambridge,England. Mathematics resources for children,parents and teachers to enrich learning. Problems,children's solutions,interactivities,games,articles,news.
MsPedagogicalProwess's insight:

A fantastic site, designed with both the teachers and students in mind. It is easy to navigate and contains a great deal of activities which can be used inside the classroom to enhance mathematical learning in the classroom.  The objective of the site is to teach maths through problem solving – they do this through provoking critical and higher order thinking. 
 

There are links to literature, which is great for teachers when looking for research to back up and provide evidence based methods for teaching various topics.

The Numeracy Continuum K-10

The Numeracy Continuum K-10 | Resources for primary Mathematics | Scoop.it
MsPedagogicalProwess's insight:

An invaluable resource for tracking student learning, whether used by the classroom teacher individually or as a stage planning tool (this is the capacity in which I have seen it being used in a primary context).
