Maths Day 2021
For our Maths Day celebrations this year we focused on problem solving and the work of Piet Mondrian. Our work was created at home and school due to the National Lockdown, meaning we had a mixture of Remote and School Learning. I am sure you will agree everyone produced fabulous work and I was very proud of everyone and the completed maths work.
Why an artist? Look at the picture below – what maths can you see within it?
We found angles and different types of lines. Mondrian’s work consists of quadrilaterals too!
Can you name the different types of lines, angles and quadrilaterals?
During the day, we created our own pieces of Artwork in the style of Mondrian – come and take a look. We hope you enjoy looking at them as much as we enjoyed creating them.
