Art & Mathematics may at first appear to be very different things.
Often, our 5/6 students prefer one over the other.
To help our students find the Mathematics in Art and the Art in Mathematics they were given the task of creating a piece of artwork that included a triangle, parallel lines, obtuse and acute angles.
In the future, I look forward to doing this activity again and then having students calculate the area of their triangles & other shapes.
This can be differentiated in so many ways and double up as a diagnostic task in many measurement & geometry concepts!
