This workshop will introduce the art and math behind cylindrical anamorphic images to K-9 students. Some of the mathematical concepts related to anamorphic images will be explored. We will also explore ways in which mathematics curriculum can be complemented with creative artistic activities. Workshop participants will have the hands-on opportunity to produce their own anamorphic images, which will be theirs to keep and re-use post-workshop. There will be opportunity to discuss how different activities related to anamorphic images could be implemented and extended to accommodate students of different abilities and interests. All materials needed for the workshop will be provided.
