The new learning processes should be piloted therefore; Interior design schools should be updated according to the results of progress in teaching methods. For this reason, the objective of this study is to define the formulation of a mixed learning model for mathematics applications and technical models within the interior educational system. This paper’s main objective is to find explanations of incorporating the cotemporary interior design within the Mathematics & Modular art content, and to seek modern solutions featuring as new methods. This paper was carried out by experimental procedure in University of Petra/Department of Interior Design based on basic design courses in the academic years 2011-2012 where the researcher took a sample of ten student forms based on the models which were chosen in this experiment combining both difficulty & ease. The students have completed these ten shapes by altering mathematical approach (Latin square) to create a new pattern design. Art with Mathematical approaches have been applied in different practical applications as a basic design tool, and conclusions have been reached on the merits of the design. The advantages and disadvantages of teaching interior design have been introduced from Art & mathematical perspective as a method of design based on the results found during the practical applications of basic design projects and from information in publications on the subject. Relying on these proposed models, the proposals will constantly develop design tools. In conclusion, educating future designers to digest the essence of these approaches will make it possible to train professionals who correctly use and understand the developed technologies that can create futuristic designs.
