How to Anamorph
Sharp, John
Mathematics Teaching, n217 p7-11 Mar 2010
Art uses mathematics in many ways. The author's teaching and involvement with mathematics and art in the Bridges Conference connecting the two have convinced him more and more that concepts for understanding mathematics can be achieved by the use of art. The author states that one reason he believes in teaching mathematics through art is that it gives "ownership" to learners. By this, he means that learners are creating their own work and they have to be able to express themselves and produce their own results. In this article, the author tries to unravel "figures 1 and 2" of Colin Foster's "Anamorphic Art" article in "MT199," and illustrates how one can learn in many different ways with anamorphosis. (Contains 11 figures.)
