CAST Art Appreciation in Pre-Algebra

CAST eighth graders in Mrs. Dayton’s pre-algebra class integrated art appreciation into their practice of solving pairs of simultaneous linear equations. Students first observed works of art from Louis Comfort Tiffany and the Art Nouveau Movement of the 19th century. Then students plotted points using the given system of lines. Afterwards, they used the lines to create their own pieces of stained-glass artwork.
