Creative Learning Experiences in Math. Resource Guide 8.
Lee, Ronald T., Ed.
This guide emphasizes the areas of elementary level mathematics, architecture, and visual arts and gives secondary emphasis to language arts/English and creative writing. The major goals are to develop an understanding of how the arts can enhance mathematical concepts, to describe mathematical qualities through the application of the arts, and to develop a sensitivity to the everyday uses of artistic forms in converting mathematical concepts into aesthetically pleasing concrete forms. The lesson plans contained in this document are grouped into the areas of: (1) "Measurement, Form, Shape, Building Models"; (2) "Math in Art and Poetry"; (3) "Computation"; (4) "Patterns and Shapes"; (5) "Descriptive Data"; and (6) "Graphing." Each lesson plan includes objectives, materials used, learning activities, and questions to ask in advance. One table summarizes the material in the eight guides. (DC)
