Art inspired by mathematics

The goal of this project is to stady connections between mathematics and art and architecture.We would like to show how mathematics is not just about formulas and logic, but about patterns, symmetry, structure, shape and beauty. We will study topics like Painting, Pyramids, The Golden Ratio,The Platonic Solids and Polyhedra, Perspective, Kaleidoscopes, Symmetry, Patterns and Tilings, Mazes and Labyrinths, music and ect After taking this project our students/pupils will look at the world with new eyes and notice mathematical structures around them.
