Sculptural Stories and Triangle Triplet Poems

This residency provided an excellent opportunity for math and language arts teachers to collaborate with an artist. Middle School students in Yakima Washington used the geometry of the equilateral triangle to explore tessellations. Triangle Triplet Poem Cards where created in there first explorations. From here they reasoned out how to create networks of the triangles that could be folded to create platonic solids. The students used their knowledge to create sculptures that displayed stories of their own creation.
