Math x Art

I'm intentionally trying to focus on math & art activities more this year, so I wanted to start a page on the blog to collect resources and posts and ideas as they develop and that we've done in the past.  There's a lot of input from students, preservice teachers and other teachers here, but I especially have to shout out to Susan Walborn (who got me started on this) and Heather Harrington Minnebo (my current partner in crime). (Note: tessellations have their own page and Islamic Geometry a separate Google doc.)

Suggestions for additions to this page are welcome, encouraged and sought out!

History of Infinity, Becca Wittebols
Her design process

I have gotten to share at Twitter Math Camp, Michigan Council of Teachers of Mathematics and NCTM Regionals on integrating math and art. The most recent, a lesson on infinity tiles with Heather. An older presentation page:, and a newer one, with Heather Minnebo Also K-2 MathArt with Heather at Math in Action 2017.

  1. Do these sorts of things fit:
    Mondrian Puzzle from Mathpickle, Art & Sculpture from the Art of Mathematics series, flexagons, origami, fractals?
