Submissions due: February 21, 2020

About the Challenge
In the Art of Math Challenge, students use math strategies to design and build a 3-D scale model of a painting in the Barnes collection. They collaborate as a group to build the model and write a description of their mathematical process. The competition culminates with an exhibit of all submitted models at the Barnes’s PECO Free First Sunday Family Day on March 1, 2020.
Each participating class must provide:
- A 3-D scale model of one of the three paintings, created using student-led mathematical strategies
- A written statement describing the mathematical strategies used to make the model
- A photograph of the model taken from the best viewer perspective
