Art and Maths in the Courtauld Collection
This learning resource reveals the fascinating connections between art and maths by exploring The Courtauld Gallery’s collections of Islamic metalwork and Italian Maiolica ceramics, and demonstrates how they can encourage your students to appreciate mathematics as an inter-connected discipline with a wide range of creative applications that can be used in school.
The accompanying lesson plan and student workbook relates to upper Key Stage 2 but can be adapted to suit other stages of learning.
