The workshop titled “Transformational Art and Math Strategies found in Indigenous Cultures” will occur at the United Federation of Teachers’ Headquarters in New York City on May 13, 2014.
This workshop will demonstrate to art and math teachers how to use software that is openly accessible via the internet. Participants will engage in hands-on activities to simulate arts of various world cultures and their mathematical basis. Math concepts will include transformational geometry (translation, dilation, rotation and reflection) and the Cartesian coordinate system.
Rensselaer’s Internal Review Board that evaluates research on human subjects approved this workshop.
