Students explore the essential question, “What types of relationships can be modeled by linear graphs?” Math and visual art are integrated to help students understand how algebraic expressions are used to analyze or solve problems, how real world situations can be represented symbolically and graphically, and how design can be based on mathematical operations.
Relationships
What types of relationships can be modeled by linear graphs?
The student will understand that:
Minnesota Academic Standards-Mathematics K-12
Strand: Algebra
Standard
Understand the concept of function, and identify important features of functions and other relations using symbolic and graphical methods where appropriate.
Benchmark: 9.2.1.7
Understand the concept of an asymptote and identify asymptotes for exponential and reciprocals of linear functions, using symbolic and graphical methods. (Reasoning)
Minnesota Academic Standards-Arts K-12
Strand II: Artistic Process: Create or Make
Create or make in a variety of contexts in the arts using the artistic foundations.
Benchmark: 9.2.1.5.1
Create a single, complex artwork or multiple artworks to express ideas (Product/Performance)
Strand I: Artistic Foundations
Standard 1: Demonstrate knowledge of the foundations of the arts area.
Benchmark: 9.1.1.5.2
Evaluate how the principles of visual art such as repetition, pattern, emphasis, contrast, and balance are used in the creation of, presentations, or response to visual artworks. (Reasoning)
Students will correctly graph and label reciprocal functions on their stained glass window design.
Criteria Referenced Test
Assessment of graphs of reciprocal functions, and accurate identification of asymptotes using reciprocal functions.
Students will create a stained glass design applying reciprocal functions in the design and the use of the principles of art: repetition, pattern and contrast.
Checklist
Students will write an evaluation of how repetition, pattern and contrast in art and reciprocal functions in math were used in their stained glass design.
Math/Art Rubric
The student will…
The student will cover sections 9-1 through 9-6 from Glencoe McGraw-Hill Algebra 2 Textbook.
The student will choose another student’s artwork, and complete a claim/support/question worksheet about the selected artwork.
