Delivering Math Concept through an Art Piece

How can one teach Math concept or provide Mathematical experiences through an Art Piece? I learned that it can be challenging but definitely possible.

I went to the Singapore Art Museum today on a mission to find an art piece that I can use to provided mathematical experiences in differentiated learning. There were many pieces that allowed us teachers to choose the right one for the right type of learning. I have listed some examples below: 


Look at this art piece. This is located at the Singapore Art Museum, Learning Gallery 1, titled Singapore Idols Grasscutters by Jing Quek. 

What are some mathematical experiences can you provide to your child through this art piece? 

  • Number Bonds up to 10
  • Classifying
  • Counting
  • Multiplication/ Division
  • Patterning


This art piece, in a form of stop motion animation, is located at the Singapore Art Museum, Learning Gallery 2, titled Tromarama by Zsa Zsa Zsu. Though it is in a form of music video, you can use screen shots to look at the pieces.

Through this piece, the following mathematical concepts can be provided:
  • Sorting
  • Patterning
  • Comparing
  • Measurement
Whoever said Maths is boring has not ventured enough yet!!!
