Create an artistic drawing or painting that uses math or shows math concepts you have learned.

To get started with this project, check out these models:

Tips

  1. Your mathematical art can be about numbers, shapes, patterns, and relationships. Think about what you are exploring and learning in mathematics and about how to show those ideas in a design or illustration.
  2. You can use tools to help with your drawing, painting or sculpture, like pattern blocks, cuisenaire rods, rulers, compasses, protractors. If you don’t want to draw, you can make designs with objects like pattern blocks and photograph them. 
  3. You can also create your art with drawing programs and mathematical programs online, and print out your work. 

Working on Projects at Home is different than working in school. 
We do not give you lessons or directions.
We give you models of each project to look at carefully, and then you decide how to adopt the project for your interests, skills, materials, time, and any new ideas you have.
Your project does not have to look like the models—it can be inspired by the models.
If you are proud of what you created, we encourage you to share it online with the hashtag:  #ProjectsAtHome.
