Dear All,

Attached is a flyer for what is expected to be a great workshop that looks
at the connections between math and art taking place at the Museum of Modern
Art in NYC. I know one of the workshop facilitators (Sunita Vatuk) as she
works on a research team with me and I can honestly say that she is both a
mathematician and an artist who tries to find true connections between the
two (not merely superficial ones). The workshop is geared for HS and MS
teachers. I would definitely recommend it. --Lidia G

Some info follows (more is in the attachment). Please distribute to anyone
you think would like to attend.

A joint workshop with The Museum of Modern Art and MetroMath at the Graduate
Center, CUNY.

This workshop is designed for math teachers who are interested in learning
new strategies for bringing art into the math classroom. Using works of art
from MoMA¹s collection, this workshop explores the ways in which we can use
observation and literacy skills in looking at art and apply those skills to
mathematical objects. The workshop will take place at the Museum of Modern
Art, in the Museum¹s galleries and the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman
Education and Research . Through close observation, guided discussion and
hands-on activities, we will explore the use of inquiry- and
observation-based teaching strategies and their application to math topics
and curriculum.
