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!

  1. I was taught stuff like this in elementary school – called Aestheometry! I loved it and have been playing with it ever since. Try it with 2 straight lines as well. You can make curves by only drawing straight lines! Fun and amazing!
