This online exhibition is created from submissions to our Rangoli Maths Project which took place in spring 2020.
A Rangoli is a colourful design made on the floor using coloured rice powder. It is often used by Hindus throughout Diwali. Another form of Rangoli pattern is Mendhi which is used to decorate hands and feet during festivals and weddings.
In maths, Rangoli patterns are a creative way to discover symmetry, reflection and tessellation.
