Ms. Kat from Ogden UT is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Math Art Project

Help me give my students the supplies that we need in order to make our math art project, the culminating project in our study of fractals.

My Students

The upper elementary resource room serves the hard-working students with disabilities in a Title I urban school. We are a diverse population, with many races, genders, cultures, and abilities. In addition to academic needs, most of our students are also still learning how to manage their behavior and emotions in a classroom setting.

Small groups of students come into the resource classroom several times a day to have lessons or get help with reading, math, writing, and social-emotional skills.

We work hands-on, using math manipulatives and other Montessori materials to help us understand difficult math concepts.

My Project

One of my favorite electives to teach is applied mathematics. We will be studying math as it's used in art, focusing primarily on creating color using ratios and making shapes with fractals, tessellations, and geometric shapes.

We are missing a few key art supplies to make our final cumulative project.

One group of students is working on Escher-inspired tessellations, while another group is creating a giant Sierpinski's Gasket. Our math classroom is well-equipped with rulers, protractors, and other drawing supplies, but we are short on the vibrant colors that will really bring our projects to life.
