• Use of Mathematics in Costume Design and Construction

      My journey at Brockport did not follow the typical mathematics major’s path; as a student in the adolescent education program, I focused on topics of mathematical literacy, including conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and mathematical reasoning. As an Honors student, I supplemented my learning experience by contracting courses in stage makeup and costume construction. This thesis combines what I’ve learned across the disciplines, and demonstrates the importance of teaching for mathematical literacy, and the benefits of recognizing underlying mathematical concepts and making informed decisions based on them.
