#MathArtChallenge Day 73: More Islamic Design

I tend to treat math art a bit like meditation & it helps to calm me down when I’m stressed or struggling. Last night, I could hear helicopters and smell smoke – please know that I am fine – several miles away from what’s happening in Minneapolis. But I couldn’t sleep, so I got up to make some tea and watched this video from Samira Mian with plans to create it myself in the morning. Didn’t fix everything that’s happening, of course, but helped me to calm down enough to sleep.

You only need one circle and the rest is straight edge work. Samira uses tracing paper, but you can easily just color the creation you make without transferring it to watercolor paper.

  1. I recognize some of these patterns from my history studies of Islam. Good work, Annie. I wish you the best in this coming academic year.
