Integration Subject: Math
ArtCore modules are inspired by big ideas, driven by essential questions, and connected to core subject areas by weaving creative engagement, artistic principles, and the studio habits of mind throughout.
Students construct monsters from various materials, learn new ways to articulate and overcome their unique anxieties, and ultimately forge more positive relationships with math.
Big Idea: We can enhance our relationship with math by understanding where our math anxiety comes from, what it looks like, and how it affects us.
Students will engage in a large-scale weaving process that will give them a visual representation of a coordinate grid.
Students learn the differences between various ratios through color mixing and no-sew mod podge quilting.
Big Idea: There are ratios all around us in the colors we see and the way shapes compare to each other in art and design.
Students learn how to plot points on a coordinate grid, solve math problems, and more by weaving a loom.
Big Idea: There is art in math and math in art. The type of thinking required to complete a creative project can be applied to creative problem solving for math equations.
Students choreograph a dance to examine geometry and discover safe methods of movement and expression.
Big Idea: Students will examine prior knowledge about transformations in geometry, and discover safe methods of movement and expression.
Students draw portraits using mathematical rules of proportion.
Big Idea: Accurate portrait drawing is executed through careful mathematical calculations, especially those concerning proportions and scaling.
