Mathematical art for Christmas
Mathematical art for Christmas – Christmas tree !
How create Christmas tree using mathematical tools That is our new task for students.
This Christmas tree (D4) was prepared in Geogebra program.
We recured successive operations : we cut out from an isosceles triangle ( it has two sides equal, and unequal to the third ) , which are determined by the centre of height, centres of sides and points of base. We start from triangle D0, we cut him and...
Exhibition of Mandals paintings
In November 2008 we enjoyed an exciting and intriguing exhibition of fascinating Mandala paintings at “Jan Kiepura” Club Arts Centre in Sosnowiec city. This exhibition featured Mandala paintings by local artists Kazimiera Sękiewicz-Pląder and Zbigniew Pląder. The exhibition provided a fascinating insight into the art of Mandala painting, creating patterns of concentric diagrams, which consist of images moving out from the centre of thepainting with repeating elements moving to the outer edge.
Letters of alphabet create patterns
It is surprising but to create interesting patterns we can use only simple letters of alphabet ( printed Characters) and different kinds of symmetries, translations, rotations, ect.. Our students have prepared beautiful set of patterns, which were created in computer program Tess, like for example this pattern with using letter " E ".
Here you can find interesting "Letters -patterns" :
Mandalas are wonderful example of Art inspired by mathematics. As for that reason we have decided to get to know more about Mandalas in different cultures, how them construct with using traditional compasses and rulers as well as computer programmes, like for example Geogebra and Tess. That is our second task. Polish and Romanian students create their own Mandalas (mathematical mandalas) using computer programmes to prepare a set of mandalas for colouring. Teachers organize special lessons and workshops about Mandalas and their mathematical and artistic meanings and virtues.Mandalas for Colouring can increase your sense...
