Amp Up the Arts and Math in steAM

The connection between math and each of the arts disciplines goes beyond the practical nature of computation to the core of what is truly beautiful about math and the arts. We have designed lessons that integrate the different artistic processes in the new CA Arts Standards to enhance and enrich the study of mathematics PK-12. At each session we will gain insight and access to a local creative space, experience a lesson together, and explore how you can continue the work of integrating math and the arts so that they share the leading role in your lessons.
