FUTURE MATHEMATICIANS OR FUTURE ARTISTS?-This month, the Division of Mathematics at GSC hopes to prove that becoming a Mathematician is like becoming an artist. April 2003 is Mathematics Awareness month at the college, and this year's theme is "Mathematics and Art." April Aware ness Mathematics Month at Glenville State College President Thomas Powc|l has proclaimed April 2003 as Mathematics Awareness Month at Glenville State College. The theme for the month is "Mathematics and Art." The annual mathematics awareness month project is a creation of the Joint Policy Board for Mathematics de- signed to showcase mathematical con- nections to other areas of human en- deavor. The rationale for this year's theme is that "the connection between mathematics and art goes back thou- sands of years. "The ancient Greeks and Romans used mathematics in sculptures and to aesthetically design buildings. In the 15th century Leonardo da Vinci wrote 'Let no one read me who is not a mathematician.' "In the 16th century Durer em- ployed mathematics to introduce per- spective in drawings, while in the 18th and 19th centuries mathematics saw extensive use through the design of Gothic cathedrals, Rose windows, mosaics and tilings. To the cubists and many abstract expressionists in the 20th century, geometric forms were fundamental. "In recent decades several award winning sculptors have used topoi- ogy as the basis for their pieces. The close connection between mathemat- ics and art is most readily seen in the works of the Dutch artist M. C. Escher. Among the mathematical ideas repre- sented in his work are: infinity, Mo- bius bands, tessellations, deforma- tions, reflections, Platonic solids, spi- rals, symmetry, and the hyperbolic plane."
