Project Kickoff

Your Challenge. You will create a poster, drawing, or personal adornment such as a fingernail design, piece of jewelry, or tattoo that uses at least two different triangular shapes. The product must meet the criteria for ‘beautiful’—that is, it must display symmetry or other design elements that make it attractive.

Driving Question. How can I use a variety of triangles to create a poster, drawing, or personal adornment that meets the criteria for ‘beautiful’ artwork?

View Cezanne’s The Card Players and identify the triangular shapes in the painting.

View these examples of triangles in art.

If you have no or little experience with PBL, your teacher may ask you to watch the video Project Based Learning: Explained (approximately 4 minutes) or a video on PBL and mathematics (approximately 30 minutes).
