Mathematical Art: Lost in Translation

Traditionally, high school geometry has focused on the study of two- and three-dimensional figures, postulates, measurements (NCTM, 2018). Through connecting geometry, art, cultures, and mathematics, we can create opportunities for students to experience the joy and beauty of mathematics that can help to foster and/or extend other connected concepts.

Traditionally, high school geometry has focused on the study of two- and three-dimensional figures, postulates, and measurements. By connecting geometry, art, and history, we can create opportunities for students to experience the excitement and beauty of mathematics that can help to build on larger ideas of reasoning and proof.
