Ancient Mosaics and Early Math

from North Carolina Museum of Art

Program image

In this interactive, hands-on experience, students explore K-2 math standards in geometry while practicing observation, collaboration, and creative thinking. Using the North Carolina Museum of Art's Roman Mosaic, students identify shapes, patterns, and questions they have about its function and history. Students learn about the mosaic from museum experts and create their own collaborative mosaic during the live virtual field trip. Post-visit activity suggestions are provided to extend the experience and help students deepen the connection between the ancient object and their own lives

Program Details

Format

Pre-visit (two class periods): Students examine the NCMA’s Roman Mosaic through guided group discussion. Students investigate the mosaic’s shapes and patterns more thoroughly using a photocopy of the work of art and prompts targeting K-2 geometry standards.


Virtual field trip (30 minutes total): NCMA facilitator leads a conversation with students in the gallery in front of the mosaic, addressing questions students have about the object’s material, history, or function. A short video clip featuring NCMA Curator Caroline Rocheleau may be used as relevant to enrich the discussion. Facilitator leads students in an exercise of collaborative mosaic making with students using held shapes and their bodies to create patterns.


Post-visit: Teachers are provided with a variety of options for extending the experience. For example, students may design their own permanent mosaics, draw comparisons between mosaics and other types of flooring, or practice mosaic building using online tools.

Objectives

Students respond to a work of art by articulating what they see and the questions provoked by the work.
Students identify a variety shapes such as triangles, squares, and hexagons.
Students identify patterns.
Students define mosaic as artwork made up of small shapes that create a pattern or patterns.
Students plan and create collaborative and individual works of art.

Common Core State Standards for Math
CCSS.Math.Content.K.G.A.1 Describe objects in the environment using names of shapes, and describe the relative positions of these objects using terms such as above, below, beside, in front of, behind, and next to.
CCSS.Math.Content.K.G.A.2 Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.
CCSS.Math.Content.K.G.B.4 Analyze and compare two- and three-dimensional shapes, in different sizes and orientations, using informal language to describe their similarities, differences, parts (e.g., number of sides and vertices/"corners") and other attributes (e.g., having sides of equal length).
CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.B.5 Count to answer "how many?" questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects.
CCSS.Math.Content.1.G.A.1 Distinguish between defining attributes (e.g., triangles are closed and three-sided) versus non-defining attributes (e.g., color, orientation, overall size); build and draw shapes to possess defining attributes
CCSS.Math.Content.2.G.A.1 Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces.1 Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.
