|Summary||The inextricable connection between Arts and mathematics has been witnessed throughout time and across cultures. Whether in architecture, in artworks and artefacts, in music or in dance, we are able to perceive line, shape, pattern, symmetry. Understanding these helps us construct a meaningful relationship with the artwork The Expressive Arts provide rich contexts for the exploration of pattern within an aesthetic framework, whilst mathematics is concerned with ways abstracting and describing pattern.
