Math and the Art of Escher is one of the courses offered and the work shown on this page represents the mathematical artwork produced during the nine week course.
Rosette and Border Patterns
The Rosette patterns are finite motifs classified by the reflections they may or may not have and the order of the rotation. The rosettes created varied from the abstract to more representational. The students turned in sketches to show the design process and wrote a paper explaining the mathematics used to create the design.
