Mandalas, Radial Symmetry, Transformations

This week we are creating mandalas in the art room. We are using reflections and rotations to create radial symmetry. Using math in the art room! Who would have thunk it! More pictures to follow.

I love this one so much!  I hate to say that when the artist showed it to me, I was totally shocked by how awesome it looked.  He got it! He really got it!

This student had done this design first , then changed his mind and started on something more ordinary.  When I saw this design, I told him that he TOTALLY needed to do this one.  This is from a student who has been apathetic in my class, at best.  He generally rushes through his work and puts very little care into what he is doing.  I hope that he didn't see me do my little happy dance when I walked away from his table.  I can't wait to see how this looks when he is finished!
