    Quick & Easy Math Art

    Quick & Easy Math Art

    by Deborah Schecter

    What better way to engage students and deepen their mathematical understanding than with creative, hands-on art projects? Students use place-value knowledge to “build” Place-Value Skylines, multiply to create “Be Mine” Multiplication arrays, measure to create Area & Perimeter Pals, collect, display, and interpret data to assemble Sand Castle Glyphs, and more. Projects feature easy-to-find materials, step-by-step how-to’s, and reproducible templates and record sheets. Lessons make math meaningful and are great for introducing skills and concepts, reteaching, reinforcement, or review. Meets national and state math standards!
