2 Islamic Patterns Teaching Resources Project Overview: I wanted the pupils to see the connections between Islamic patterns and areas within Maths. We started by exploring the mathematical history of Islamic patterns in mosques, prayer mats; this also involved a lesson with the art specialist. For example we discovered that mathematicians as early as the 14th Century helped to shape the Islamic Patterns we know today. As an introduction we identified and examined a range of different examples of Islamic patterns. The criteria we decided for our investigations were shape, pattern, symmetry and colour. The results the initial activity enabled us to look at each criterion in more depth. For example shape: different types of triangle, symmetry: identifying lines of.. Rotational symmetry, pattern: tiling, tessellations. Documents
