Event description

Description

As a sculptor of constructive geometric forms, George Hart’s work deals with patterns and relationships derived from classical ideals of balance and symmetry. Mathematical yet organic, these abstract forms invite the viewer to partake of the geometric aesthetic. During this Thursday Think, Teachers will create giant mathematical constructions (which will be up to 6-feet in diameter) from cardboard sheets. When put on display, they serve as centerpieces for mathematical conversations throughout your mathematics classroom and school. These are very low-cost activities that can be made from scrap or donated cardboard, yet they have a huge visual impact and can get students to see math in a new way. Several designs will be constructed at the same time during the session and teachers will learn all the steps to replicate them in their own classrooms.
