Sublime Symmetry - Education

Teachers' Maths Resource Pack - Download now!

The idea for the Sublime Symmetry exhibition stems from The De Morgan Foundation’s own research into William De Morgan’s use of mathematics to create his ceramic designs and discovery of the links between the devices he used and what is taught in mathematics at KS2 today.

Sublime Symmetry Christmas Arts and Crafts ideas

Why not make you're own De Morgan and maths Christmas card designs?



Outreach Education Project with Briercliffe Primary School

Briercliffe Primary School took part in a project to design and create interactive games for children visiting the Sublime Symmetry exhibition. Following lessons in school on De Morgan's use of pattern, shape and symmetry in his designs, class six came up with some incredible and challenging games which can now be seen as part of the Sublime Symmetry exhibition.




An example of the work Briercliffe Primary School pupils coompleted.
