Math Art - Fun with a Ruler - Tumbleweed
A ‘Fun with a Ruler’ math/art project for your students. This project involves your students ruling straight lines between 2 dots on a template. When they have finished drawing all of the lines they can give their artwork some colour.

Included:
♦ Template
♦ Example
♦ Instructions
♦ Teacher notes

Level of Difficulty:
Your students need to be able to use a ruler to draw straight lines between 2 points. The design can look more complicated than it actually is. Concentration is required, but the actual process is not difficult.

Instructions:

Equipment:
You need a ruler and a pen (black works best). Something to colour with (eg coloured pencils, watercolours, felt tip markers, chalk pastels, dye, etc)

Size:
The circle is approximately18cm in diameter. Designed on A4 size paper.



Keywords: string art, math, geometry, patterns, lines, ruler.
