Desription of Math Art Posters
On a Cayley table for addition, mod n, the equivalence classes have been represented using colored designs. Horizontal and vertical reflections of the table are then tiled together to make a reflection poster two tables wide and two tables high. Rotation combinations or simple repetitions of the original table also make interesting visual images.

Students in this course create a variety of posters by drawing the four poster tables by hand. All of these ideas are from original papers by Forseth & Troutman, for example:
