More than Math shows teachers how to integrate the visual arts into a third- through fifth-grade mathematics curriculum using works of art from the collection of the Asheville Art Museum in Asheville, North Carolina. The site features eight activities that explore concepts shared by mathematics and the visual arts including pattern, symmetry, proportion, perspective, balance, and geometric form. Other areas of the site include instructions for using the activities in class, a gallery of artwork, and artist biographies. While the mathematical tasks presented are based on the North Carolina Standard Course of Study goals and objectives, teachers in other locales should be able to easily adapt the lessons to their own state standards.
