TEACHERS, PARENTS AND OTHER CAREGIVERS: These resources are designed to facilitate you in cultivating curiosity and designing various types of inquiry experiences for your learners. Be sure to carefully screen all materials for age appropriateness and conformation to your district’s regulatory screening processes (curriculum, privacy, ect.).
STUDENTS: Although some of these resources will be appropriate for your curiosity and learning, they have been placed here for use by adults. Please check with an adult before accessing or signing up for any resource listed on this page or on the website in general.
QUESTIONS and investigations:
- What Math lives in Art/Music/Painting/Dance/This sculpture…..?
- How are Math and Art the same/different?
- How does this (sample of math or art) use Creative/Critical Thinking?
- What is the relationship of play/exploration in Math and Art?
- Compare the meanings of balance/line/space/square…in Math and Art.
- Explore the use of tools (pencil, ruler, compass, grid paper, etc.) in doing both Math and Art.

- Coding: is a great way to explore Math and Art IF students are asked to think about mathematical and artistic concepts and principles as they code. See the Nelson video’s above and my Coding/Weaving/Math page for examples of how this can be richly done. MinecraftEDU has Math Worlds already created for younger students, Linx is great for ages 8+ before students move on to professional coding languages, like Python.
