1)There are famous monuments all around the world. Are you inspired to create Math problems using them?
2)Do you love traveling? How do you include travel experiences in your assignments?
A year ago, I listened to a webinar about the beauty of math hidden in famous landmarks around the globe. I thought I re-share this information in this communication thread and give well deserved credit to former AMATYC President Jim Roznowski. He presented about interesting architectural buildings that can be used to embellish any mathematics course with a global perspective. From the Basilica de la Sagrada Familia in Barcelona to the Colosseum in Rome, the Sydney Opera House, or the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in D.C., he found ways to either inspire students or make them literally work the mathematics in a problem. He provided a plethora of resources, book titles, publications, websites, sample handouts, and images to give global learning in mathematics a try.
