Abstract

A transdisciplinary course, Crystal Flowers in Halls of Mirrors: Mathematics meets Art and Architecture, was established in 2013 at Aalto University to reveal contemporary mathematics to a diverse group of university students, from freshmen to graduate level. We especially wanted to address whether depth can be achieved at the same time as breadth in this context. After two successful implementations we have found new ways to increase interaction between mathematics and other fields.
