Quilling Polar Equations

Source: Pixhere.com

Type: Investigation

Theme: Art

Grades: 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12

Learning Target: Students will model polar equation by quilling flowers with cut paper.


This project is for individuals.

  1. Research quilling techniques.
  2. Compare quilling to polar equations. Choose a minimum of three different equations to recreate in your artwork.
  3. Sketch three drafts of your flowers.
  4. Obtain two Peer Reviews. Revise one sketch.
  5. Recreate one of your flowers in your sketch using Desmos with polar equations.
  6. Cut strips of paper.
  7. Create final artwork. Quilling can be done with a penny nail.


  1. Three sketches
  2. Revised sketch.
  3. Desmos graph.
  4. Photo of final artwork.
