L’apport des arts visuels au développement des compétences géométriques au cycle 2

Abstract : According to many authors and educationalists, interdisciplinarity is said to be a success and motivation driver because it would give meaning to the learning. Through this experiment, we expected to understand how a cross-disciplinary approach between arts and mathematics could develop geometric skills among six-year-old to seven-year-old pupils. In support of our research, we designed a learning unit where both disciplines would enrich each other. Laden with meaning, the forged links between fine arts, art history and geometry appeared as exponential drivers of motivation, involvement and pleasure for the class. In order to analyse the pupil’s progress, we carried out an assessment of their geometric skills before and after the art lessons implementation. Through this cross-disciplinary project, the observed pupils clearly improved their ruler tracing technique, their visual spatial intelligence and the ability to identify usual plane figures. They also developed a higher rigour and precision in the way they work. This experiment confirms unquestionably the contribution of arts to the geometric skills enhancement.
