Expressing Math Through Art

In this experiential workshop participants will learn to see the empowering ways in which art can reach and support the mathematical learning of all students. We will discuss the alignment of the art and math curricular competencies so that learners are able to create works of art that are founded on math principals and ideas. Teachers will walk away being able to offer art as a vehicle to experience and explain math as well as the confidence to authentically assess student work.
