Art and Maths Event at the Whitworth Art Gallery

From Course Director of KS5 Mathematics, Mr Balcombe:

“On Wednesday, 5th June, 24 students from Year 9 visited the Whitworth Art  Gallery  to  experience  an  ‘Art and Maths’  event.  It was  run by PGCE Maths students from the University of Manchester. A wide variety of creative events took place to engage the students to use artistic skills and mathematical  ability  in  tandem.  The  students  painted  ‘pi’  with  colours selected by the digits of ‘pi’, they solved grid problems, created tessellations, drew symmetrical rangoli patterns, created thread sculptures, painted with probability and also ballet danced according to ‘pi’ music. The students were a credit to the school and were enjoying themselves so much that they had to be dragged away from each of the activities!”
