You and your learner will never look at

mathematics the same again!


Join Me For a comprehensive Educational "MathArt" Experience during these four 6-week classes including: Math Connections with the Real World , MathArt in Ancient Cultures, MathArt in the Arts & Sciences and MathArt: Patterns in Nature.



Are you and your learner frustrated about the lack of real world connections in your usual mathematics curriculum?

Are you and your learner stuck in the curriculum rut rat race? You might be afraid to veer from your academic plan for the homeschool year for fear of not meeting your state's requirements. Yet, you and your child may suffer from curriculum boredom, burnout and academic compartmentalization. What does "academic compartmentalization" mean? It's the usual mainstream educational way of treating all academic subjects as separate entities. However, the world does not turn that way. Everything is interwoven in intricate ways! Learning is interconnected! You and your learner can have your eyes opened and enjoy a well-rounded academic journey seeing real world connections everyday around you! PLUS, you can still meet your state's homeschool requirements. But, how about more fun, enjoyment and even a transformative experience while learning along the way? How about combining major subjects while learning deep connections there are between the natural world, sciences, math, history, cultures and literature!?

Boy and a whelk

Your learner can experience connections there are between nature, art, science, history, math and more! This young man found a whelk at the seashore. The Whelk exhibits a spiral type called the Logarithmic or growth spiral. Many gastropod shells have this beautiful pattern. 


Why studying mathematics with art, ancient history & nature can be both fulfilling and rewarding.

My students and I have been looking at the amazing connections there are with mathematics, art, nature, the sciences and history since 2003. In 2011, I began developing an ever growing homeschool online curriculum that brings in real world connections with mathematics. Bringing in academic subjects with seamless cross-curricular connections creates a well-rounded curriculum that not only can save preparation time, but de-compartmentalizes academics. When academics are studied in unit-study fashion, students are liberated time-wise to follow their learning curiosity and passion. They become inspired and in awe at the varying connections there are between academics and the real world!



Here I am fall 2010, with my homeschool students, running a nature-based program I founded called HASC (Heathcote Art & Science Center). I was cutting open various fruits and vegetables and we looked at nature's patterns found within each. The students were amazed and in awe at the connections between their food and mathematics. All the while we did this hands-on study, my students also filled their tummies with the healthy, yummy fruits and veggies!

Real World Connections with Math is Both Inspiring and Transformative


There's just something truly remarkable and transformative about seeing the world through an artistic mathematical eye. Some of the greatest artists of all time did this very thing. M.C. Escher (1898 - 1972) was pure genius when it came to combining art with geometry. His most famous works of art intrigue mathematicians and artists to this day. Leonardo da Vinci (1452 - 1519) studied the world from all academic angles. HIs most famous works of art, such as the Mona Lisa and the Last Supper, incorporate a famed ratio called the Golden ratio, represented by the numeric ratio of 1:1.618 and by the Greek symbol Phi. The Golden ratio is seen in Mona Lisa's face and the entire proportions of the painting. The Golden ratio is found in many famous architectural works. See examples below.

M.C. Escher's popular lithograph print, Relativity, uses very strategic geometric applications to give this impossible illusionary construction of a world without gravity. I teach a 2-session class about M.C. Escher. Copyright M.C. Escher 1953.

Here is an example project a student could do from Escher's work, Relativity.

MathArt Student, Megan Boyer, Testimonial - March 2016

"The more I learn in MathArt, the more I realize the infinite number of ways math can be used. I have absolutely despised math since I was old enough to add and subtract; therefore, math has always been a cold, empty, meaningless subject to me.

My hatred of math stemmed mostly from a learning disability called dyscalculia, which interferes with awareness of concepts such as numerical values, memorization of facts, measurements, ability to tell time, and distinction between left and right. My favorite subjects in school have always been the arts and natural sciences. When I began taking the MathArt class, I learned that my most beloved and hated subjects were not opposites, but intertwined. I'd never viewed math in that light before and it has helped me greatly in all three subjects.

Now, I realize that math is in fact a helpful tool. Just as you can't expect to draw anything without a pencil, you can't expect your drawing of a cat to look like a cat without the proper proportions -and math can help with that. Building a rough mannequin of your subject using geometric shapes helps to get the "feel" of the object, I've discovered.

Once I began thinking of math as the key to imagination, rather than the locked door that blocked creativity, I noticed a change in my art.

My drawings no longer looked stiff and emotionless. My people seemed to be alive on the paper, smiling at me in their cartoonish way." -Megan Boyer

She hold's a bachelor's degree in K - 12 education, has taught all grades and most subjects. In 2003, NatureGlo found her niche teaching zoology, Marine Biology, rocks and minerals, botany, and a unique math enrichment course, called MathArt. She has been teaching live online classes to homeschool students since 2011.

Have a look at my fall 2010 MathArt homeschool students looking at the Golden ratio and nature's patterns in botany!

hasc students looking at nature's patterns in fruits and vegetables

Another fun view as my students and I look at nature's patterns found in fruits and vegetables.

looking at the pattern of a vertical apple cross-section

Looking at the pattern found within a vertical cross-section of an apple. What shape is found in a horizontal cross-section of an apple? Right! A 5-pointed star. Go ahead and try a horizontal cross-section of an apple and see for your homeschool selves!

Cross-section pattern found within a red cabbage head

One of nature's most intriguing patterns are found within the cross-section of a red-cabbage. It shows a fractal or self-similar pattern at each zoom-in level. Meaning, the fractals look the same or similar at each level from the whole cabbage to the tiny center.

Jack's inspection of the Fibonacci numbers found in a pine cone

HASC student, Jack, inspecting the Fibonacci numbers found in each spiral turn of the pine cone. Jack's assignment was to paint each spiral turn a different color.

Have a look at these happy parent testimonials!

"These classes are awesome because the structure of the class is very interactive. The PowerPoint interaction pages really help reinforce the material. My son is not only learning the information but retaining it as well! He also loves the fact that the students work is shared regularly in the classes.

Additionally, NatureGlo, you should know that you really helped him develop much needed group communication skills. The way you encouraged the students to do reports and projects and share with others on the class page was awesome. Carlisle was diagnosed with autism at age 2, and social skills have always been a work in progress. The way you set up the sharing section of the classes allowed him to practice back and forth communication with others while giving him to time to think through his responses. This was really valuable for him because this summer he took a history class at the college and they had a similar set up with a class page that everyone needed to contribute on. Thanks to your classes, he had already practiced that skill and he did really well wth the group responses and earned 92 in the class.

Thanks again for offering such a valuable service to home schooling family's!" -Ceason C.

"...We love the live classes. They add an interactive component to our studies. It's fun for my children to be able to log on and learn with other homeschoolers from all over the world. The teacher was very engaging. We will be on the look out for more classes with NatureGlo..."
-Evamarie

A Little Birdie Told Me you might think these:

Our family doesn't have time for online classes. Our schedule is packed.  This is your invitation to perhaps take a break from part of or most of your usual curriculum and enjoy the cross-curricular connections there are in the MathArt classes. You can also use these classes alongside your curriculum. You won't regret focusing on the cross-curricular connections there are between mathematics, arts and sciences. Students come away from the MathArt classes with the ability to see the world with more open eyes to the many connections between math, nature, science, art, architecture and more. They don't look a plant, flower, tree or mineral the same again. They see the world from a mathematical and artistic perspective which they can use the rest of their lives in whatever career they choose. This "MathArt" view of the world gives learners the tools for a deeper application of creativity they can use not only in their homeschool work but in all areas of life for the rest of their lives!


I can't afford online classes. There is a reasonable cost for each of the individual MathArt classes. For the 4-class bundle, there is a 3-month payment plan available for those who can't afford the one-time payment.


I'm concerned that the MathArt class won't cover enough ground for our homeschool year's math curriculum. That's certainly a legitimate concern as your homeschool time per activity and subject is important. The MathArt classes are unique as we cover a broad range of academic subjects with a focus on history, mathematics, and art among other subjects. It is rare to find a curriculum that goes much into depth about math topics such as the Fibonacci numbers and Golden ratio. These numbers encompasses a broad range of mathematical concepts appropriate for multiple ages and abilities including addition, subtraction, multiplication, percents, squaring & cubing numbers on up into middle and high school geometry and algebra.  Few mainstream curriculums have the time to go into the depth we do with these universal and all encompassing mathematic topics covered in these classes.


Our kids don't do well with written work. Do they have to complete each lesson's study guide?
I leave it up to parents as to how much work their learner puts into each lesson. The study guides are available to reinforce each lesson. Instead of or in addition to completing the study guides, students can take notes in a free-style journal and focus on several or one major project per class.


So, what's in NatureGlo's "secret" online classes sauce?
