The IDEAS Abstract Thought class is combining art and math to explore the concepts of quadratics, trigonometry, linear equations and permutations. Starting second trimester, the students have been creating big and small works of art to both understand the math concepts and teach the rest of the class.
“Education serves as the greatest tool we have for social change and, by being a teacher, I have a direct impact on the lives of students and can help them better find their place in the world and also move the world toward a more equal and balanced space,” shared Peter Woods, who teaches math at IDEAS.
