Metaphor is frequently used in theatre to convey important messages to the audience. An interdisciplinary honors class used metaphor and theatre to teach students mathematics. Each group created a tangible object that was relevant to a mathematical principle of choice and that embodied a metaphor. Each tangible object was presented to the greater community at an art opening. Two of the projects will be discussed in this paper as well as results from a pre- and post-course surveys on students’ perceptions of mathematics.
