Hook your charges on how to solve a real-world art problem with mathematics by showing works of Christo. You can find eye-catching images on the Christo and Jeanne Claude webpage. Here, math learners help Jean Claude and Christo prepare a model of their next big project, by finding the volume of a right rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths. Once the model is finished, young geometers will calculate the fabric needed for Christo to finish his project. A great instructional task about volume and surface area.
- Solves a real-world art problem with mathematics
