Artsy Math or Math & Art
Gr 3-4 or 5-6
Do you enjoy art? Do you enjoy math? This class is designed for both! Students will create using math concepts like symmetry, tessellation, geometry and measurement. No artistic skill necessary—if you can measure color, and draw a straight line (maybe with a ruler) - you can create art and learn about math.

Pitch your product at the end of class and your fellow business leaders will decide what product they want to buy with their “fun money.”
