How can geometric art be used to provoke debate about immigration?

 

Project Overview

Students used an immigration story from the news and created a piece of artwork in the form of Kandinsky geometric art. They had to research numbers which could be represented in their picture from the immigration story and apply it to their picture.

Students learnt about how to construct shapes using a pair of compasses and a ruler.

How was is assessed?

It was assessed through Episode Packs which pupils had to complete throughout the project.

What the student says

“The constructions were really hard to do so it was good putting them in context of a story. I liked how the immigration theme was the same as we were talking about in coaching as well so it all linked together."

What skills were developed?

  • Students learnt about how to construct shapes using a pair of compasses and a ruler.

What the teacher says

“Students really engaged with the debates around immigration whilst using their mathematical constructions to create a beautiful piece of work. This project sparked lots of debate as well as allowing pupils to be creative with their maths.”
