## #MathArtChallenge Day 19: Alternating knots

The Challenge: Draw an alternating knot. Then see if there’s any way to draw a looping line that cannot be turned into an alternating knot.

Materials needed: Pencil & eraser, or whiteboard, or markers?
Math concepts you could explore with this challenge: counting, graph theory, knot theory, vertices/intersections.

## #MathArtChallenge Day 17: PERMUTOHEDRONS

The Challenge: Create your very own order 4 Permutohedron (see video below).

Materials Needed: Paper, pencil, patience, and if you want to go 3D, you sure can. Post-it notes work pretty well when playing with this.
Math concepts you could explore with this challenge: angles, combinations & permutations, geometric construction, geometry, graph theory, polyhedra, sequences, vertices/intersections.

## #MathArtChallenge Day 1: Tons of triangles

The Challenge: Draw as many connected triangles as you can. Goal is to have as many vertices with 7 triangles as possible.

Materials Required: Writing surface, writing utensil
Math concepts you could explore with this challenge: angles, counting, exponents, fractals, functions (exponential), triangles, geometry, graph theory, hyperbolic geometry, lines, polygons, sequences, intersections/vertices
