Kelsey Brannon - Visual Pedagogy Project: Art Integration in Math

  1. 1. Art Integration in Math KELSEY BRANNON 04/10/12 EDUC M333
  2. 2. Importance of Art Integration More engaging Allows students to be creative Makes the topic visual, which can be clearer to students
  3. 3. Art can be adapted to any subject area (math, science, social studies, reading)
  4. 4. Arts Integration and Test Scores Studies have shown that teachers who use art integration in certain subject areas have improved test scores (Ingram, 2003) SUBJECT/GRADE IMPROVEMENT (points per unit) Reading/3rd Grade 1.02 points Math/3rd Grade 1.08 points Reading/4th Grade 1.32 points Math/5th Grade .77 points
  5. 5. How to Use Art Integration? More integration in one subject than less integration in multiple subjects (Ingram, 2003)
  6. 6. Importance of Art Integration in Math Researchers have found many congruencies with math and the arts (Bickley-Green, 1995) Recognizing congruencies leads to more effective instruction (Bickley-Green, 1995)
  7. 7. Lesson Plan: Reflections, Translations, and Rotations
