The Mathematics of Perspective in Art with Sarah Hart (University of London)

Open to: All Full-time Pre K-12 Classroom Teachers
Opportunity at a Glance: Math and art might seem like different interests, but they have long been connected.  The art of M.C. Escher has been a favorite among mathematicians–its ingenious tilings of the plane with interlocking figures can, in theory, extend forever.  Where do these principles come from, and how do they work?  This class will explore where math meets art.

During the three sessions participants will do the following:

  • Teachers learn from Dr. Hart in the first two sessions; and
  • During the third session exchange ideas with each other.

Participants have some homework for each and are selected by application or nomination.

CTLE credits available. Cost: $175, paid by your school. Scholarships are available.
