This bundle of classes covers fascinating Math topics that help students see Math all around them and begin to understand how this language unlocks mysteries of our universe. Through video lessons and guided discovery activities, students will enjoy learning Math beyond the pages of a textbook and realize real world Math is everywhere!
Explore the hidden language behind masterpieces in both Art and Nature.
"Mathematics is the language of the universe." -- Galileo Galilei
In this course, we'll look at the mysterious patterns that appear all around us (and inside us!) when we take a minute to observe things carefully.
- Mathematicians have discovered order in a world that seems full of chaos.
- Artists have used those discoveries to create beautiful masterpieces.
- Scientists have taken those discoveries further and used them to develop complex machines that improve our way of life.
- And now we can have fun exploring this hidden language of the universe and create our own Math Art masterpieces!
- Tessellations & Symmetry
- Phi: The Most Magnificent Number in the Universe!
- Fibonacci Numbers
Each class is composed of a video lesson (about 25 - 45 minutes long) taught by a Math Teacher (M.A.) and an accompanying workbook of printable activities and resources.
- Note-taking pages
- Each packet includes pages with the class outline and note-taking space for following along during the video lesson.
- Journal Pages
- Students are encouraged to go on nature walks to explore their world and look for the topics covered in each class. Journal pages provide prompts for writing and sketching.
- Math Art instructions
- Each class comes with instructions for creating your own Math Art masterpiece based on the current class topic.
- Writing Practice
- Each packet includes a relevant quote or poem; one page provides handwriting practice and a second page provides writing prompts to help students dig deeper into the topic.
- Bingo Board
- This bingo-style game board gives students the opportunity to explore each topic in a variety of ways as they work their way through the course.
- "Dive Deeper" resource lists
- Each packet includes recommended resources for diving deeper into the class topic. You will find links and references to books, websites, videos, and activities.
- These lessons are perfect for all ages!
- I've built the classes around concepts and activities I taught in high school Geometry classes, but young kids could also enjoy, understand, and participate in almost everything here.
- Built-in differentiation:
- All activities can be done on whatever level kids (or adults :) ) are at. You'll find resources for books and videos and activities at the end of each printable pack for a range of ages as well.
- see Math outside the [textbook] box,
- understand the patterns and mathematical precision of the world around us, and
- enjoy learning to think Mathematically.
"Math Art Explosion in my brain! My grandchildren have found Art Math to be their favorite math. They said that they never knew math was everywhere. Thank you so much." -- Sandra B.
"My son is saying that he is learning a whole lot and looks forward to the next class! You have him hooked on learning math in a way that is fun on so many levels! Thank you for inspiring us to new heights! We appreciate all your effort and dedication!" -- Jamie P.
"My daughter loves art, but isn't too thrilled with Math. I knew they could go together, but just had a hard time doing it myself. I am so excited about these classes! She really enjoyed the first class, and is excited to do the next one!" -- Caroline W.
"Thank you so much for the video! We really enjoyed it. Everyone (11yo, 9yo, 7yo and two adults) were all totally engrossed and engaged. We each learned something(s) new as well! And it encouraged some lovely conversation too. Thank you!" -- Sarah H.
Teachers can either show these videos directly to their class or use the videos as a resource to create their own lessons.
