An Interesting Blog of Math Illustrations --- Picasso Math

Picasso Math is an interesting blog containing illustrations of math topics. These can be used in many ways. I think students would enjoy them. This would also be a great way to bring Novelty to the classroom.

Here are a few ideas:

  • Use them as writing/journal prompts. Students could describe the math topic being illustrated or describe what the illustration means.
  • Show one to students and have them create their own for a different math concept/topic. For example: Show this one about dividing fractions (see below) and have students create their own about multiplying fractions.
  • Have students critique the image. Do they thing it best represents the math topic? If so, why. If not, why?

Happy Illustrating! Hope you enjoy this great resource!
