The #MathArtChallenge is just a fun, simple way to engage our brains during this time of unease. All tasks are low tech: paper, pencil, maybe string. Nothing fancy. I would LOVE to see what you come up with. Post on social media with the hashtag #MathArtChallenge!
THE CHALLENGE: Draw as many connected triangles as you can. Goal is to have as many vertices with 7 triangles as possible.
MATERIALS NEEDED: writing utensil, writing surface (paper, whiteboard, whatever!)
UPDATE (4/3) Here’s a quick video tutorial after lots of requests for help in the comments: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ObGkAqoN-Q
