The Mathematical Art of M. C. Escher

Logo for The Mathematical Art of M. C. Escher
This website takes Escher’s drawings a step further by showing his “impossible” drawings as physical objects; three-dimensional models designed by using computer graphics. The ants marching on the moebius ring is actually shown as a working model. There is not a lot of written information, but the graphics created here, lend a better understanding to Escher’s optical illusions.

Wow, this is something that i would have loved to encounter in high school geometry or art class to add that extra visual to our coursework. I believe objects like this should be introduced to students beginning second grade to give them more advanced visuals for mathematics. The page flows and has alot of visuals to support the topic. I definitely enjoyed this material.

Technical Remarks:

This entry is more of a basic webpage with minimal technical specifications. The links are sufficient to support the topics and no snags existed while I was surfing the page.
