Math art projects are some of the most amazing and fun ways to teach math. There is so much math in art and so much art in math! Art and mathematics may seem an unlikely pair, but they are intertwined in so many ways. Today I want to share with you some amazing Math Art Projects for Kids.
This week, to celebrate the launch of my new book Math Art and Drawing Games for Kids, I am hosting a Math Art series on my site. Each day there is a theme that combines math and art in a creative way. There are some incredibly talented bloggers joining me who will be sharing their own ideas related to Math Art.
First a little about the Math Art and Drawing Games for Kids book. This is a book with more than 40 projects that bring art and math together in fun and creative ways. They teach kids problem solving, creativity and innovation in real life ways.
All of these projects were tested and loved by my own kids! After a year of work, I am so excited that this book is finally launching.
The week before it was officially released, it made the #1 status in new releases for Math Books for Children on Amazon!
Included in the book are the following categories:
- Math with Fine Artists- this section brings together modern art and contemporary artists and pairs them with math in fun and innovative ways. Artists use math constantly and you will learn about some of the ways in these projects.
- Art with Graphs, Grids, Numbers and Equations- We love doing math art with graph paper and grids, and using equations such as the golden ratio to make beautiful works of art.
- Symmetry in Art- Symmetry is such a fun way to create! Learn about some fun symmetrical art projects.
- Geometric Art- Bring together shapes and art and you have so much beauty! The possibilities here are virtually endless.
- Cultural Math Art ~ This section goes through art history and combines it with cultural history as well.
- Edible Math Art- All of these projects can be eaten! Math in the kitchen is one of our favorites.
