The Art and Beauty of Mathematics
Club @RJLEE with Ms. Voltz
After School Club!
We’re going to put the A in STEM! So, full STEAM ahead as we use math to create beautiful works of art. You will investigate tessellations, parabolas, Fibonacci as well as tools of geometry as you see works of art unfold before your eyes! You will be invited to study artists and mathematicians who are sure to color your world and open your eyes, mind and hearts to the beauty that is mathematics! The possibilities are truly infinite!
I'm looking forward to exploring the world of art and mathematics with you! I hope you enjoy exploring this Smore and get your creative juices flowing! I wonder what we will all create.
How About Starting with a Cube?
Using Desmos to Create Parabola Art
Perfecting Our Parabolas!
Parabolas in the Real World
Draw 2 line segments, (looking like you might create a graph), then mark of equal segments on each LEG of your right angle. I suggest one centimeter apart.
Notice how you use the ruler to connect the furthest to the closest point? If you are right handed, hold the ruler in your left hand, never cross over, and use the PENCIL, SLIDE, PIVOT and DRAW to make your lines nice and neat!
Take your time!
