Title: Art Algorithms
In this Science Update, from Science NetLinks, you'll hear about new methods of art conservation. Art conservation is traditionally a painstaking and time-consuming business. But the process of fixing up a damaged da Vinci or a scarred Seurat may become a lot easier, thanks to the work of mathematicians. Science Updates are audio interviews with scientists and are accompanied by a set of questions as well as links to related Science NetLinks lessons and other related resources.
Standard(s): [MA2015] MI1 (9-12) 9: Analyze works of visual art and architecture for mathematical relationships. (Alabama)
Title: Graph Creator
This Illuminations resource is a java applet that allows students to draw and manipulate graphs. This interactive math activity is available both online and in downloadable format.
Standard(s): [MA2015] MI1 (9-12) 8: Solve problems from non-Euclidean geometry, including graph theory, networks, topology, and fractals. (Alabama)
Title: Tower of Hanoi
This student interactive, from Illuminations, presents a tower of from three to 20 disks, initially stacked in increasing size on one of three pegs. The goal is to move all the discs from the left peg to the right one using the smallest number of moves possible.
Standard(s): [MA2015] DM1 (9-12) 12: Use combinatorial reasoning and counting techniques to solve application-based problems. (Alabama)
