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: Create a Mondrian artwork (maybe with a goal of getting the lowest score?) Here’s a Math Pickle article to get you started.
MATERIALS NEEDED: Writing utensil and paper. (This would be fun with chalk!)
Above is my attempt at a 6×6 grid. I do not yet, I believe, have the best solution, but it’s okay. Stay tuned for a bonus twist to this one today!
