Daniel Jarvis and Irene Naested highlight the natural association between math and art in a series of practical ideas for the classroom, because when students understand the math/art connection, their understanding and confidence increase in both subjects. Through innovative teaching strategies and more than 100 rich learning experiences, Jarvis and Naested give teachers a wealth of engaging tools to explore the math/art connection with their own students. This connection is established through examinations of natural and human-designed objects, from how pine cone scales spiral out in a Fibonacci sequence to how geometric shapes combine in architecture to form some of the most beautiful structures on the planet.the larger grid by carefully noting where and how the various lines of the drawing intersect within the grid squares. ... any point in the coordinate system can be given by a set of two numa bers or letters that correspond to how the point is related to these two coordinate grid lines. In the popular childrena#39;s game of Battleship, for example, a letter and number system are used to locate points on the grid (e.g., anbsp;...
