Math Art - Geometry

This year as a supplement to my daughter's math curriculum, she has been creating geometrical art pictures. Following the book Mathematics in Space And Time by John Blackwood she has created many impressive works while learning how to use a compass and a straight edge.


Now she knows how to bisect an angle, find the midpoint of a line, draw a hexagon and create a spiral using only her straight edge and compass. This is one of her favorite weekly activities as she has always loved coloring. The book is recommended for ages 12-14, but my five year old watches closely as she creates these drawings and then tries to emulate her. I think my five year old will have more success in a few years and I will definitely introduce her to these activities in the future.

  4. Thanks for the book recommendation. I just bought a used copy! Not only is my son taking Geometry this year, he's taking Studio Art, so it's a great match. I blogged on math games and activities for high school students today. You might find it helpful as your daughter progresses through math. www.playgroundofwords.blogspot.com

  12. free ged practice test printable test online sources include state websites as well as platforms provided by well-meaning non-profit organizations . These offer preparatory courses as well as pre-tests and study guides. Most of the online resources are put together by academicians and experts in the exam components. The online modules that GED reviewers use are self-paced and interactive.
