Title: PowerPoint Presentation Art and Math

Art and Math
Integrating Curriculum Nora Graham Cody Taggart
(No Transcript)
Project Overview
  • Integration of Art and Math
  • Learning math through art history and art
  • Learning art technique while incorporating math
  • Show students the importance of math and art

(No Transcript)
Rationale for Connecting Math and Art
  • To connect the creative and logical process of
    artists to create better art.
  • To increase the understanding of math concepts
    through art projects.
  • Connecting the thought process of art and math
    disciplines to create dynamic pieces of art.
  • To make math more interesting and useful in
    applications outside the realm of conceptual math.

Rationale for Connecting Math and Art (continued)
  • To show that creativity plays an important part
    in problem solving and math exploration
  • To improve students ability to see math in real
    world situations
  • To encourage art students to use math skills when
    creating art
  • To have students make connections between art and

Questions to Guide our Action Research Project
  • Does the art element help the students understand
    the math concepts more efficiently?
  • Do students feel the integration of math improves
    their ability to make creative and dynamic art?
  • Can students understand math concepts from
    minimal instruction and displacement into another
  • What parts of integration help the students learn
    at a more optimal level?
  • How does the integration inhibit exploration of
    math and creativity in art?

Methods of Data Collection
  • Initial class discussion
  • Teacher/researcher journals and observation
  • Student journals
  • Midyear and end year surveys
  • Interviews- individual or small group
  • Student feedback forms
  • Videography

Project Timeline
  • Class combination once every two weeks.
  • Classes will alternate classrooms.
  • Classroom of discipline will dominate curriculum,
    but aspects of other discipline will be
  • Student feedback and teacher observation/journalin
    g will be ongoing.
  • Modifications to curriculum will be applied
    depending on success of project.

Literary Review
  • Frucht, W. (Ed). (2000). Imaginary Numbers An
    Anthology of Marvelous Mathematical Stories,
    Diversions, Poems, and Musings. New York Wiley.
  • An interesting combination of story telling and
    mathematics. A collection of writings related to
    the world of mathmatics by a variety of authors
    including Rudy Rucker, Italo Calvino, William
    Gibson, and Lewis Carroll. Each story creatively
    teaches a math concept.
  • Gardner, H. (1991). Art Education and Human
    Development (Occasional Papers, Series 3). J.
    Paul Getty Trust Publications.
  • Howard Gardner discusses the involvement of art
    and human intelligences and human development in
    several essays.
  • Atalay, B. (2004). Math and The Mona Lisa The
    Art and Science of Leonardo Da Vinci. New York
    Smithsonian Books.
  • Discusses the connections between art and science
    (mathematics, architecture, astronomy, etc.)
    found in work by artist Da Vinci. Pays particular
    attention to the Fibonacci sequence and finds
    unity in the art and science disciplines.

  • Fowler, C. (1996). Strong Arts, Strong Schools
    The Promising Potential and Shortsighted
    Disregard of the Arts in American Schooling.
    London Oxford University Press.
  • The book contains eighteen essays discussing the
    importance of arts and the need to sustain the
    arts in our education system. Fowler outlines
    our current situation with the arts in education
    and examines connections between the arts and
    science and industry. He addresses how art makes
    learning relevant and fun for students and how it
    teaches students to be creative and inventive
    thinkers. Fowler examines curriculum and offers
    recommendations about how to put more emphasis on
    art education.
  • Brosterman, N. (1997). Inventing Kindergarten.
    Harry N Abrams.
  • Brosterman examines Friedrich Froebels ideas and
    beliefs about kindergarten and makes a case for
    Froebels model of education linking many modern
    artists to their roots in a Froebel style
    kindergarten class. His approach to education
    is hands-on and interdisciplinary.

    Connections in Middle School (report no.
    EDO-SE-95-5). Washington D.C. Office of
    Educational Research and Improvement.
  • Reed discusses the obstacles in integrating
    mathematics and other curriculums, yet emphasizes
    the importance of connecting math to other
    disciplines at the middle school level, which is
    when students begin to understand the power of
    mathematics. Reed gives integrated math lesson
    ideas for making connections between math and
    other subjects.
