There are innumerable ways. There is an old mathematics book that has a chapter on math and art. I will try to track the title down for you. Also COMAP recently had come up with a book on three of its ARISE programs, known as "Mathematics: Modeling Our World" published by South-Western Publishing Co.; there is an entire chapter devoted to math & art! There was an article in the February 1992 "Mathematics Teacher under Using Technology" to show how spreadsheets can be used to connect math and art similar to the kind of art done by Salvador Dali. Check out the work of MCEscher and the many books on tessellations! All of the computer graphics used to create "special effects" in movies come from mathematics and art! Hope this helps! -Claudia, for the Teacher2Teacher service
