Integrated Math 156 is Learning the Art of Math
Mr. Dinwiddie, from RRCC's Integrated Math 156, gave his class the challenge of developing their own tessellation works of art. His students were able to integrate their math skills with their creative abilities by creating tessellations. A tesellation is a shape that is repeated over and over again, covering a plane without any gaps or overlaps. M.C. Escher was a well-known artist who used this style of tessellation to create famous works of art. Isn't it amazing how we can find the Arts in everything?

We are committed to discovering how the Arts are
integrated into everything and bringing an
understanding and awareness of the arts to ourselves
and our community.
The ArtSmart Planning Group is a collaborative effort
by staff, faculty and students to discover the arts
in everything. The challenge to discover the arts in
every department and division of RRCC was given,
along with a generous $10,000 donation, by Terry
Stevinson. The first to accept the challenge was RRCC
President, Michelle Haney, who matched the
contribution creating a $20,000 grant. Our
student-driven program, with the guidance of staff
and faculty, has been entrusted with this challenge.
Through promotion of current arts and future events
we seek to not just discover the arts in everything
but to identify why it is important.
Over the course of the school year, The ArtSmart Planning Group will be accomplishing this through a variety of interdisciplinary projects, activities, media and information aimed at exposing the arts we find and create in our community.
