Math and Arts Connections
In this fun and engaging workshop, you will find out how to use arts-integrated teaching to illuminate mathematical concepts. Printmaking, poetry, dance, theater, music—the elements of all these art forms correlate with many concepts in math. You will experience how the arts draw students in to learning about math. The artwork displayed at the Bascom will offer sources of inspiration.
What will you know or be able to do after this workshop? By experiencing and exploring several demonstration lessons in which various art forms are integrated with Math, you will gain an understanding of how to imagine, design, and create arts-integrated lessons in your teaching practice. You will be able to use these lessons right away with your students.
