Is there a ‘Making Way’ to show or learn mathematical concepts, skills and procedures
by engaging with the struggle that is making art?

At MathWeave we are investigating what mathematical knowledge, skills and thinking are inherent to visual arts. More specifically, we are currently focusing on the mathematics in textiles. We use Making with Rigour to investigate the mathematical thinking in the design, creation, and appreciation of artefacts, in order to attempt to answer the above broad question.

The outcomes of these investigations include:

This month we are reading:

  • YMCA George Williams College Reflection, Learning and Education
  • Rodgers, C. Defininig Reflection: another Look at John Dewey and Reflective Thinking
  • Adapted and simplified from Tripp, D. Kinds of Judgement and Analysis
In past meetings we discussed these readings.
