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: Find a smaller circle you can trace. Then trace large circle to use as a guide. Finally, trace a bunch of smaller circles in a ring to create a torus (more commonly known as a donut).
MATERIALS NEEDED: Paper, writing utensil(s), circles. The circles can be whatever, but rigid is helpful and even better if they’re empty (masking tape is great!)
Here are mine!
