The visual arts are a great tool for teaching mathematical concepts, such as symmetry, pattern and shape. This area of education has been widely researched and there is much evidence to support the idea that using art to teach mathematics, particularly geometry, to pupils who are visual and kinaesthetic learners can be beneficial for their learning and comprehension of the subject. The idea for the Sublime Symmetry pack stems from The De Morgan Foundation’s own research into William De Morgan’s use of mathematics to create his ceramic designs and discovery of the links between the devices he used and the geometry taught in mathematics at KS2 today.

Though the Sublime Symmetry exhibition has ended, this pack can be used as a stand-alone classroom resource.
