#MathArtChallenge Day 16: Mondrian Puzzles

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!)
