Make Graphing FUN!
This Curve Stitching Activity is an Integration Activity between Mathematics and Art. This can be used with upper elementary and middle school levels as an arts activity initially and then show them how it is also mathematical, or it can be used for upper level mathematics students in High School Algebra, Geometry, or Advanced classes to show how to approximate a curve using lines, finding area under a curve, etc...
This is a very versatile unit and students will have fun, rather than thinking it's the "same old boring thing."
This unit integrates the ideas of linear equations, linear functions, the Cartesian plane, x- and y- axis, curves, and so much more using the arts!
