Our new book ′Adventures On Paper! Math-Art Activities for Experience-centered Education of Mathematics′ is out, DOWNLOAD IT FOR FREE! The collection is edited by Kristóf Fenyvesi, Ilona Oláhné Téglási and Ibolya Prokajné Szilágyi and published by the Eszterházy Károly College, Eger, 2014.
This publication is a pedagogical toolkit, which presents hands-on materials and detailed methodological descriptions for the realization of almost forty interactive math-art workshops in the classroom. A number of significant international representatives of visual mathematics, mathematical art and experience-centered mathematics teaching have contributed and we have tried to cover a wide variety of topics. Most of the activities we selected can be completed with paper or cardboard on a cost-effective way and equipment readily-available in most educational institutions such as scissors and colouring pencils, and, at most, a photocopier.
We hope that the teachers who use our toolkit will succeed in encouraging their students to see mathematics as a joyful endeavour rather than the dry and boring subject many believe it to be. Moreover, we hope that this collection is adopted as a handbook not just by math teachers, but also by art teachers wishing to illuminate the links between the two disciplines of art and math.
