More Than Math

Saturday, February 10, 2018
8:30 am - 2:30 pm

Teachers: You are cordially invited to attend a FREE More than Math professional development workshop at the Museum!

  • FEBRUARY 10 — Saturday, 8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.:  Grades 3 – 5
  • APRIL 21 — Saturday, 8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.: Grades 6 – 8

More Than Math integrates the visual arts into problem-based mathematics units developed for grades 3 through 8, drawn from the context of works of art in the Museum’s Collection. More than Math focuses on the importance of each student’s unique perspective in both mathematics and art and explores analogous concepts including perspective, parallelism, symmetry, measurement, and geometric form.

This FREE workshop provides: lesson plans and student activities, resource and classroom materials, and CEU credits. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

The workshop will be led by Randy Harter, retired Math Specialist for Buncombe County Schools, and members of the Museum’s Education Department.

A confirmation letter will be emailed directly to you including the agenda, directions, and parking information.

We look forward to working with you this spring!

More Than Math

More Than Math is a program that integrates the visual arts into the 3rd through 8th grade mathematics curriculum using works of art from the Museum's Collection. More Than Math was developed in partnership with staff in the Museum's Education Department; Dr. Grayson Wheatley, professor emeritus of mathematics education, Florida State University; Randy Harter, math specialist, Buncombe County School District; and the School of Education at UNC Chapel Hill.

Classroom teachers of 3rd through 8th grade students are invited to take part in More Than Math workshops at the Museum. We provide teachers from each grade level with a lesson plan and access to website activities designed for their students. In the school year following their workshop, teachers and their students are provided with a complimentary field trip to the Museum for a guided tour and hands-on studio project.

For questions about More than Math, email Kelly Baisley, school & family programs manager, or call 828.253.3227 x133.
