Math and Art!

Time: 3/4/2015 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: Miller Hall 156

Join Dina Buric and Teresa Downard who are developing a new GUR, MATH 160 Mathematics and Art, for an interactive experience. This course is built from beautiful, accessible, and challenging problems from a broad range of mathematical disciplines. In these sessions we'll give a glimpse into the course through hands-on projects that involve fractals, similarity and proportion, spirolaterals, and origami.

Part 1: For the first session we’ll introduce the course with a short presentation, explore aspects of design including proportion and similarity, and experience the process of mathematical discovery through spirolaterals. If the weather permits, we will end the session outside with some examples of conic sections.

All faculty and staff are invited to attend this two-part “mini course” offered on two dates, each covering different material. Attend both or either:

**PART 1: Wed., March 4, 4:00-5:00 PM, Miller Hall 156
**PART 2: Wed., March 11, 4:00-5:00 PM, Miller Hall 156
