#MathArtChallenge Day 15: Isometric Illusions

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 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.
