This webinar is hosted in English
We will present the MuMart "Music Math and Art" wiki and the computer language APGS and give examples of how to learn and teach math in an intuitive way using computers.
Dr. Novak was born in Israel in 1949. He competed his masters in the Technion and later the PhD in Connecticut. Both in Pure Mathematics. Danie started teaching in 1981 at Ithaca College in upstate New York. Around that time he read Seymore Papert's book "Mind Storm". This affected him deeply and helped him reconnect with the intuitive aspects of learning and enjoying Mathematics. From this came math summer camps for children, development of a Mathematical Art college course and continuous growth in the area of "feeling mathenmatics" and developed with a colleague David Rosenthal a computer environment that can be used to teach mathematical Art.

Enjoy the class!
For the past 30 years, I have taught mathematical art and other interdisciplinary courses in the Math Department. My colleague David Rosenthal and I co-designed a computer language called APGS, which can be used to create Mathematical Art with Computers. For many years I have been organizing summer camps and math days to expose children and meaningful mathematical learning that connect Math Music and Art together. OkiDoku puzzles which is the topic of this presentation is just one piece of a bigger picture: How to inspire young mind to see and own "the beauty of Math"
