I Heart Art: Art in Arithmetic

Math wasn’t my strong-suit in school. I’ve always been more of a right-brained individual drawn to the Arts, but I did find geometry to be one of the most enjoyable classes I had ever taken. What I remembered most was learning how to create tessellations and being introduced to the work of the infinitely talented artist, M. C. Escher, who I deemed the father of tessellations. I think Escher and other like-minded individuals would appreciate Alan S. Lu’s work.
