#MathArtChallenge Day 13: Overlapping Circles

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: Can you figure out all of the ways that 3 circles overlap?

MATERIALS NEEDED: Curiosity and patience. Whatever medium you like! Please watch ONLY the first 1 minute and 20 seconds of this video. If you watch more, the answer will be given away! Don’t ruin it for yourself! It’ll be so satisfying if you do it yourself!
