Geometry Through Art

http://forum.swarthmore.edu/~sarah/shapiro/

Norman Shapiro offered to share materials from his Geometry Through
Art workshops and we seized the opportunity to bring more teaching
materials to the Forum and to build our site with contributions direct
from the classroom. You will find here a wonderful assortment of lesson
ideas, facilitation suggestions, lists of materials needed, and handouts
for you to photocopy. Mr. Shapiro focuses on the student as investigator,
learning through doing, using perception to stimulate the motivation for
more developed concepts and language. Art is one of the intrinsically
interesting applications of geometry and these pages point to a wonderful
way in to this topic for children and adults alike.
