Lesson 15: Abstraction with fashion
This lesson focuses on programmable weaving machines and the punch card programming format. The punch card system of weaving machines was the inspiration for future programmable computers. At this point in the sequence of lessons, students should be very familiar with punch cards, so this lessons moves toward patterns and abstraction. How did weaving machine punch cards represent design patterns for textiles? Students will complete the lesson by using an animal pattern to create a fashion design on paper.
