Stephanie:

In response to the request for art/geometry lessons. Do you have the newest
Crystal Production Take-5 prints, "Interdisciplinary Connections: Art and
Math?" Within the set are five wonderful prints with arts-based, grade-
appropriate math activities that are far from boring. For those of us math-
challenged art educators, these prints are very helpful. The math components
are easy to understand and the art remains central to the activity.

In the set are these images: a Buckminster Fuller geodesic dome, a rose window
from Notre Dame Cathedral, an Amish quilt, a Vasarely optical illusion, and a
contemporary computer-generated tessellation.

Also, try our website at <A HREF="http://www.art.unt.edu/ntieva/">NTIEVA
HomePage</A> , click on newsletters, and you will find our newest issue
focuses on art and math. Good luck!
