How is “Math Art” different from “Math Activities?” With activities I am explicitly trying to teach my children a concept. With art, I tend to step back and just let them enjoy, maybe pointing out some of the math concepts that appear, but not belaboring the point. I would rather them draw their own conclusions, explore and enjoy.
