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: Draw a golden spiral,
MATERIALS: Grid paper? Writing utensils.
Use grid paper. (Or not? Might be a neat wonky one if you don’t?)
Start with a 1×1 square and another next to it.
Using a 2 unit long side, create a 2×2 square.
Then a 3×3, etc.
When it’s as large as you like, draw connected quarter circles to form your spiral!
