STEM Club Mathematical Art
STEM Club have diversified into looking at the link between Art and Mathematics by experimenting with creating Mathematical pavement art. Could you use the equipment in the photo to create the art pictured? (String was also allowed!) Hint: if you have ever used compasses and a pencil to draw a perfectly regular flower with six petals, you have the experience required…
These methods of mathematical construction form the basis of some amazing Islamic art, for example the extensive tiling at the Alhambra Palace in Grenada, Spain.
