The next “Transformational Art and Math Strategies found in Indigenous Cultures” workshop will occur at the annual conference of the New York State Art Teacher’s Association (NYSATA) in Albany, New York on November 22, 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.
