youcubed: Mathematical Art (K-12)

Art is everywhere in our world and is intimately linked to maths although we may not always think of it in that way.

Poetry is all about following certain patterns within the syllables you use, music finds the ratios between tones so they harmonize at the right times, and in the visual arts we can find all sorts of geometry and patterns. This activity is about noticing and sharing the maths that is in the art from different cultures.
