Family Friday - Bead Geometry
Where's the math in beadwork? A bead is anything with a hole, its hole is just a cylinder, and the axis of that cylinder is a line segment. So, a bead is just a line segment with colorful stuff around it, and those line segments can build geometric structures. Come along as mathematical artist Gwen Fisher pulls us into her world of beaded cubes and cuboctahedrons. And once we're there, new challenges involving color and symmetry await as we explore different patterns to weave into our creations.
