>>.Hi! I am developing a course for teachers to be taught at the University
of
Phoenix and need your help. I have been reading your comments for the last
couple of days and you seem like a very helpful group of people. The course
is titled: Teaching Math Through Art. Most of my students will be
elementary
classroom teachers and a few of them will be art teachers. I need a
textbook
on the reason why integrating art and math really works. >>>

Can't help you on the text book, but there's always fractals (essentially
graphs of extremely complex math equations--if my non-math mind has it
correctly) This site is a good one to emphasize the math/art connection
http://www.fractalus.com/contest98/entries.htm
and this one will link you to more than you may want to know.

And a couple more (try a search and you'll be astonished....)

You don't have to be either an artist or a mathemetician to appreciate these
images....
