These beautiful works of MArTH (or MArt, as their creators like to call them) were made by the 5th grade students in Julia Dweck’s math class. They made every aspect of the artwork– from sanding, varnishing, constructing the frames to using math to plot the lines that would turn into curves.
The images you see, made from straight lines of string, are called parabolic curves. See how many straight lines come together to make a curve?
Julia and her students hope that these works of MArt inspire others to make MArt of their own!
