Science, from the Latin word scire (to know), is a means of improving and understanding the universe based on the collection of observation-based evidence. What this means is that science relies on experiments. Experiments provide evidence to support a scientist’s explanations for why or how things happen.
The more we understand why things happen the more learned and complex a world we become.
Inner City Angels believes that a strong arts education program that incorporates STEAM can support a student’s greater understanding and enthusiasm for science and math. And this means gaining knowledge, through the arts, on why, when and how experiments have led to accidental discoveries, thereby building our understanding of the universe.
In art, mathematics is not always visible, unless you are looking for it. But there is much symmetry, geometry, and measurement involved in creating beautiful art. As well, many artists take advantage of mathematical findings, such as the golden ratio to make their artwork realistic and beautiful. Angles and perspective can also be described using math. Perhaps math and art are quite intricately linked. Natasha Glydon, Math Beyond School
