CAST’s Modern Mathematical Masterpieces

Fourth graders in Mrs. Church’s hybrid class learned about the abstract artist Piet Mondrian as they reviewed how to find the perimeter and area of quadrilaterals. Mondrian is famous for using geometric figures and primary colors in his art. Students were tasked to create their own piece of Mondrian-inspired artwork using only squares and rectangles with a perimeter or area of 20, then added primary colors of their choosing.
