BLOSSOMS - Arabesque Groups: Where Art Meets Mathematics (Arabic)

Teacher: Dr. Jawad Abuhlail

Summary: The main objective of this lesson is to illustrate an important application of mathematics in practical life  --  namely in art. Most of the pictures selected for this lesson are visible on the walls of Al-Hambra – Granada (Spain), which is one of the most important landmarks in the Islamic civilization. There are three educational goals for this lesson: (1) establishing the concept of isometries; (2) giving real-life examples of groups; (3) demonstrating the importance of matrices and their applications.
