Summer Schools: Maths and art, Escher tessellations (age 7–9)
Mon 21 August 2017, 10:30 – 12:45 BST
Mathematics and art have a long historical relationship, from Leonardo da Vinci's use of the golden ratio in his sculptures and painting, to the use of symmetries in Islamic art. In this session students will learn about the graphical artist M.C.Escher and his work with optical illusions and tessellations. Students will learn about regular and semi-regular tessellations and will work together to answer the big question: which regular polygons will tessellate
This workshop is strictly for 7–9 year-olds. There will be a short break during the workshop and a drink and a small snack will be provided. Students should bring their own snack if they have any allergies
This workshop is based on an Ri Mathematics Masterclass. Students who have attended a Masterclass series which included a session on a similar topic may have already seen some of the content in this workshop. Please contact us on email@example.com with any questions.
