## Bonus #MathArtChallenge: Y-Labyrinths

The Challenge: Using a hexagonal grid, create a labyrinth using “Y” shapes.

Materials needed: hexagonal/isometric grid (you can print from the internet or obtain from a compass), writing utensil, randomizer (die, coin, etc.)
Math Concepts you could explore with this challenge: 2D, combinations & permutations, counting, isometric, probability, randomness

## #MathArtChallenge Day 15: Isometric Illusions

The Challenge: Create an illusion using isometric lines.

Materials Needed: Isometric Grid paper You can print some or you can create some (that just takes a bit of patience), pencil and ERASER. This challenge is best done as an exercise in erasing, changing and play. You can see in my time lapse below just how much erasing I did and I’ve done this kind of thing many times before. Be gentle with yourself.
Math concepts you could explore with this challenge: Angles, geometric construction, geometry, isometric grids, perspective

## #MathArtChallenge Day 3: Isometric Cube Cutouts

The Challenge: Draw a cube by connecting 3 rhombi (see below). Then use lines parallel to those of the rhombi to embellish the cube.

Materials Needed: writing surface, writing utensil, straight edge, colors
Math concepts you could explore with this challenge: geometric construction, isometric grids, lines, perspective, polygons, polyhedra, topology, vertices/intersections
