One artist’s answer to the age old question: How do you make math fun?

With help from PBS Learning Media, SCAPE Martinez is spreading the word that math can actually be fun!


It’s true! Discussing everything from scale factors to measurements and more, SCAPE breaks down the mathematical makeup of the mural designs in his graffiti in two excellent and colorful videos. With his refreshing take on graffiti, SCAPE shows the relevance of math in the everyday art that you love and challenges you to find the fun in it too.
