The mandala pattern offers a central hub from which all educational subjects can be taught and is the perfect tool with which to explore all aspects of life, from material to non-material."
Students will explore the mathematics behind mandalas, including but not limited to shapes and symmetry. After examining mandalas that are both natural and man-made, students will create their own mandalas using mathematical concepts and skills.
