We investigated seventh-grade students’ visual-spatial thinking processes in an art studio in which students were engaged in observing minimalist artists’ artworks and creating their own artworks, as a possible connection between visual arts and mathematics education. The findings of the study shed light on further exploration of possible connections between visual arts and mathematics education and provide a theoretical basis for STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) studies.

Playing with mathematics in the arts studio: students’ visual-spatial thinking processes in the context of a studio thinking based-environment
Kuş, Mehtap; Çakıroğlu, Erdinç; Department of Elementary Education (2019)
The aim of the study was to investigate how students make use of visual-spatial thinking processes in a Math-Art Studio Environment in which students are engaged in geometry-rich artworks through Studio Thinking Framework, which describes the nature of learning and teaching in visual art courses (Hetland, Winner, Veneema, & Sheridan, 2013). To achieve this aim, a case study method was employed. Participants of this environment were six seventh grade students enrolled in a public middle school. Data sources ...
Transitioning from Physical to Digital Sketchbooks for Industrial Design Education
Şener Pedgley, Bahar (Common Ground Research Networks, 2015-01-01)
An essential element of industrial design education is the project sketchbook, traditionally submitted as a physical (paper-based) portfolio. However, the ability for such sketchbooks to capture design decision-making and project progress made through increasingly digital design tools is ineffective. To help formulate a solution to this problem, the authors undertook a feasibility study to examine opportunities and barriers of transitioning from physical to digital student sketchbooks. Stage 1 of the resear...
Mathematics in the informal setting of an art studio: students' visuospatial thinking processes in a studio thinking-based environment
KUŞ, MEHTAP; Çakıroğlu, Erdinç (2022-03-01)
This study aimed to investigate seventh-grade students' visuospatial thinking processes in an art studio environment, where students were engaged with geometrically rich artworks. The students were asked to observe minimalist artworks, then create and critique their own and others' artworks based on the Studio Thinking Framework. Data were collected through interviews conducted with students, video recordings in the studio, and students' documents (sketches, artworks, and notes). The data were analyzed base...
Integrating Light to Foundation Course as a Basic Design Element
Özgen Koçyıldırım, Dalsu (2015-10-15)
Basic Design, the rst year foundation course of METU’s Industrial Design Department, leads students gradually from two-dimensional to three-dimensional abstract compositions. As the assignments gain volume, students experiment with the play of light and shadow that is essential for volume perception and crucial for the professional development of prospective industrial designers. Through the years of teaching Basic Design, authors observed that, students have tendency to accept light as a default and uncont...
An investigation of the effect of inquiry-based instruction enriched with origami activities on the 7th grade students’ reflection symmetry achievement, attitudes towards geometry and self-efficacy in geometry
Kandil, Semanur; Işıksal Bostan, Mine; Department of Elementary Science and Mathematics Education (2016)
The purpose of the study is to investigate the effect of inquiry-based instruction enriched with origami activities on the 7th grade students’ reflection symmetry achievement, attitudes towards geometry and self-efficacy in geometry. The study was conducted during the academic year 2015-2016 and lasted 15 class hours in three weeks. The sample was consisted of 48 seventh grade students in a public middle school in Altındağ district of Ankara. Two classes, instructed by the researcher, were randomly assigned...
