When Venn Diagrams Intersect Art & Math
Bush, Sarah B.; Karp, Karen S.; Lentz, Tova; Nadler, Jennifer
Teaching Children Mathematics, v23 n7 p414-421 Mar 2017
Many elementary schools across the nation are scaling back or cutting arts curriculum altogether. This article presents classroom teachers with an activity for integrating art with mathematics. Through a three-phase exploration of reasoning with shapes and their attributes, students will get to know a classmate better, work with defining and nondefining attributes of shapes, and categorize "famous" artwork.
