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.

Yupik Pattern Software

Many cultural designs are based on mathematical principles.To create beautiful patterns we can use also “Yupik Pattern Software”

http://www.ccd.rpi.edu/Eglash/csdt/na/yupik/yupik.html

This software can help our students learn standards-based mathematics as they simulate the original artifacts, and develop their own creations. I hope that students will prepare their own beautiful patterns.

Bead works ( bracelets) are a wonderful source of mathematics.

To demonstrate how math and art are integrated through the use of an on-line program, to assess if the use of technology can aid in student learning,I encourage Polish and Romanian students to use interesting software “Virtual Bead Loom”

http://www.ccd.rpi.edu/eglash/csdt/na/loom/index.html

This software will allow you to simulate traditional loom designs, and create new virtual designs of your own. Have a fun !

patterns,symmetries in the bracellets

This project made us to look  around with attention   and to observe how many mathematical structures we can find in the things around us.In this way you can find in the following photo album a set of bracellets made by student Diana,from X C, who used symmetries,patterns in her work.
