IT'S TRUE, MATH CAN BE PRETTY

Yes.  Art and math DO have something in common.  



Mathematicians and artists came together for the 2009 Joint Mathematics Meetings in Washington, D.C. to showcase works of art based on a subject we all thought was irrelevant to beauty.  Everything from geometry to unusual polyhedrons were used as inspiration for paintings, sculptures, and more.  To find out more about how math was used to do it, read the full article here.

This website describes the importance of mathematics and many rewarding career opportunities available to students who study mathematics.
