About This Activity

Right and left-brains collide as we explore the connections between math and art! From M.C. Escher’s tessellations to fractals to optical illusions in op-art, we’ll play with mathematical ideas as we investigate patterns, structures, and visual relationships. We’ll expand spatial-thinking and visualization skills when we design and build our own polyhedral (3-D geometrical figures) and geometric solids (e.g., cones, cubes, cylinders). As we explore Albuquerque Academy’s campus, we’ll find shapes and designs in the natural and material worlds that inspire our own creations! Requirements: Bring a snack and a water bottle for breaks Nicole Tabor teaches 2nd grade at Georgia O'Keeffe Elementary School, where she taught an after-school problem-solving math club to 4th and 5th graders. Ms. Tabor previously taught 3rd and 5th graders in Colorado and New Mexico. She received a B.S. in Elementary Education with endorsements in TESOL and Language Arts.
