Art, Design & Mathematics

Created by artist Melissa Tomlinson Newell and mathematician Deann Leoni, this page presents lecture-studio courses in both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional design. These courses allow students to explore elements and principles of design with a focus on critical thinking and problem solving. Syllabi for both courses are available, as well as some sample projects, student work, and instructor reflections. This is an excellent resource for educators looking to explore mathematics with students in new ways, or for design teachers looking to incorporate math skills into the classroom.
