Clarissa Grandi - Using Art to Teach Maths

About The Event

This webinar will outline some of the pedagogical benefits of using mathematical art tasks in the KS2, 3 or 4 mathematics classroom. Participants will be introduced to a selection of ready-made mathematical art lesson resources and will look at ways of using these resources to maximise engagement and support learning across different areas of the curriculum. Finally, there will be the opportunity to explore a couple of activities in more depth and create some mathematical art of our own! No prior experience necessary. 

Equipment required: 5-6 sheets of plain A4 paper, a pair of compasses, and a pencil, ruler and eraser.
