Seventh graders have recently been creating mini-golf lanes (or holes) with Tinkercad computer-aided design (CAD) software for a math-art integrated STREAM assignment. Eighth graders have made human figure models with wire, paper, tape, cloth, paint, yarn, glue, and other materials. Even though the mini-golf project is a virtual construction and the human figure sculptures involve the manipulation of physically real materials, both assignments provide an opportunity for students to employ spatial and structural reasoning in their creative work.
