This is a course in mathematics and art suitable for liberal arts students. Our approach is highly activity and experience based. We will travel to Amsterdam and the Hague, visiting some great art museums. Our goal is to explore how some of the greatest mathematical ideas had parallel developments in the world of art, all told through a narrative of culture and the history of ideas.
