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.
