“Teaching Math Through Art” takes students from around 3rd to the 8th grade and goes through all the things they need to know in math and puts lessons in a hands on art context. Rotations, reflections, fractions (when drawing the face, measuring tryptches, grids, and more), three dimensional shapes, and much more are included.
Master works of art such as Carravagio’s “Narcissus,” when studying reflection, and Leonardo da Vinci’s math used in facial proportions are part of this unique approach to math basics.

Math can be a very difficult subject for artistically inclined students. This FREEBIE is a supplement to a math textbook. The approach here is different; the goal is that students can see the connection between art and cooking, architecture, engineering and things in everyday life!
Math was always very difficult for me, primarily because I wanted to see everything in a visual way. Fractions, understanding angles, two and three dimensional objects and other mathematical concepts are presented here in a visual and kinesthetic manner.
Master artists have used mathematical principals for centuries. Recognizing and counting money and telling time are important math skills. This book shows geometric and spatial sense involving measurement (including length, area, volume), and similarity and transformations of shapes.
This book also shows mathematical systems (including real numbers, whole numbers, integers, fractions), geometry, and number theory (including primes, factors, multiples). Most important, it is a different approach to the study of math!
There are 22 mathematical topics taught through visual and kinesthetic activities.
