Mathematical ideas have always influenced societies, and artists are often among the first to explore and express their meanings and implications. This course presents a variety of mathematical ideas from across cultures and times, particularly those that are still useful to artists, craftspeople, architects, and designers, from the mathematics of nature to modern computers.
Each class involves visual presentations and hands–on activities from the course reader/workbook for exploring mathematical ideas. Weekly homework involves creating something original to demonstrate an understanding of the mathematical ideas. The textbook supplements the ideas and helps prepare for upcoming class sessions.
This course satisfies the Math requirement or an H&S elective.
