**AIM**

Art has a universal appeal. Geometry has an inherent perfection and its own beauty. I thought that if a student works on geometry by creating a perfect form, it may bring perfection in the fingers that work upon the design! Also, one will learn to work with the tools of geometry – protractor, ruler and compass – and weave the beautiful creations…

**STRATEGY**- To be done in the Maths class on Thursdays.
- The Thursday class was converted into project class.
- Pair work
- Each pair of students was given one geometric design
- They were asked first to figure out how it was done
- Using the geometry tools – ruler, compass, protractor, pencil – copy it to perfection
- ‘Colour it as you wish’. Convert it to an art piece!
- The book used for taking the designs was by Bruce Rawles (Sacred Geometry Design)

**CONCEPTS -**Geometrical constructions

**INSTRUCTIONS**

- Figure out the geometry of a design given
- Copy it with perfection
- Colour it and turn it into a design
- Make a presentation to the class. Explain how you drew the design, giving all the geometrical processes and rules involved.
- Also share what you found easy and difficult during the project

**RUBRIC**

A clear rubric always helps students to organize their thoughts.

- perfection of geometry – 10 marks
- Art work – 5 marks
- Verbal presentation - 5
