Abstract

As teacher-centered classrooms continue to lose their effectiveness at all levels of mathematical learning in the United States, teachers should use a more student-centered approach by implementing math-related art in the classroom. Implementing math-related art in the classroom is a great tool for engaging students in effective mathematical learning. It requires students to use their critical thinking on how to apply mathematical ideas, principles, rules, and properties to design and create art while also allowing the students to freely express themselves. Adding math-related art can transform a math lesson into project-based learning. Teachers can also use math-related art as a summative assessment as students think outside the box in using their mathematical reasoning to implement math-related ideas in their art.

I hope as people observe the Mathematical Art Exhibit, they will see mathematical ideas, principles, rules, and properties transformed into art that I expressed and abstracted freely. Then connecting those free expressions to student learning. Promoting critical thinking as each canvas displays acrylic paint in a way that balances love for mathematics with love for student learning.
