Some one asked me this recently. Here’s my response after a bit more thinking (and internet browsing):
Using and understanding:
- Measurement. This could involve measuring up a canvas, creating a border, or reading a plan.
- Location, distance, and directions. This could involve instructions on either a small or large scale, or use of grids or vectors for placing objects.
- Shape, size, scale, proportion, sequence and orientation in 2-D and 3-D. This covers just about all aspects of drawing, painting, and could encompass sculpture and computer-aided design as well.
- Number relationships, patterns, and spatial awareness. Both maths and art are built around patterns and relationships between objects.
- Pattern awareness. Creating patterns involves counting, measuring, and sequencing in different ways.
- Critical numeracy skills. Learners could engage in the deconstruction of
media texts, or discuss how they make decisions about everyday issues relating to content which involve mathematical concepts.
I’d love someone who knows more about it to expand on this for me…
