This presentation describes the team-teaching of a course in mathematics and art. The goal of the class is to show students the interplay between art and math with a focus on having them make physical objects. Most math and art classes we have heard of focus primarily on introducing liberal arts students to mathematics. In a STEM context, we want to instead build on the mathematical knowledge that our students already have. We intend for students to use their existing mathematical (and perhaps artistic) knowledge to reinforce new artistic (and perhaps mathematical) experiences. Ideally, the knowledge and experience gained will increase their appreciation for both the beauty of mathematics and the importance of art.
