'The problem of the graphic artist' is a small example of applying elementary
mathematics (divisibility of natural numbers) to a real problem which we ourselves have
actually experienced. It deals with the possibilities for partitioning a sheet of paper into strips. In this contribution we report on a teaching unit in grade 6 as well as on informal tests with students in school and university. Finally we analyse this example methodologically, summarise our observations with pupils and students, and draw some didactical conclusions.
