  • Read the spreadsheet and observe the illustrations. (Examples: the number 4 is represented by 4 buttons with 4 holes; the number 6 is represented by 6 dominoes with 6 points).
  • Create a spreadsheet in the manner of the artist (cutting, collage).

 

THE MATHEMATICAL STORY

Delivered Exploration tracks

Open Books Site

  • Read the album and observe the illustrations: geometric shapes represent the characters in the story.
  • Imagine another story that features geometric figures.
  • Make the illustrations like the author-illustrator (cutting and collage).

 

ILLUSTRATIONS USING GEOMETRIC SHAPES

  • Observe the shapes on the cover page: eight shapes make up the name of the main character.
  • Read the album and examine the illustrations. The eight shapes on the cover page recur throughout the story. They are arranged differently to give life to the elements presented in the text: a face, a church, a genius, a boat, a fish ...
  • Create new illustrations with the same eight shapes.

OR

  • Imagine another story and illustrate it with a set of shapes of your choice.

SUMMARY OF THE FILE

INTRODUCTION

  • The links between mathematics and the visual arts
  • Overview
  • Proposal

MATHEMATICS AS A TOOL TO SUPPORT CREATION

  • Very useful mathematical tools
    • Perspective
    • The lines of composition
    • The proportions and the golden ratio
    • Symmetry and asymmetry
    • Geometric transformations
    • Algorithms and mathematical formulas
    • Ranking strategies
  • Examples of avenues of exploration
    • Storage art

MATHEMATICS AS A SUBJECT OF CREATION

  • Abstract art with a geometric flavor
    • Abstraction: Homage to Kandinsky
    • Abstraction: The circle in all its forms
    • Optical art: Homage to Vasarely
  • Figurative art with a mathematical flavor
    • Mathematical photography

OTHER CREATIVE IDEAS

  • The spreadsheet
  • The story with a mathematical flavor
  • Illustrations using geometric shapes

CONCLUSION

  • The end of a journey… The beginning of creation
