Movement & Mathematics: Thinking With Your Feet
Presenter – Erik Stern
Learn methods to keep your students engaged by using creative problem solving in the arts-dance to understand mathematical patterns and thinking. Explore mathematics through movement activities that provide a learning by “doing” approach.
Mathematical topics: Least Common Multiple, Greatest Common Divisor, fractions, angles, addition, and multiplication while addressing the Common Core mathematical practices. No movement experience required!
This workshop is free.
This workshop will coincide with THEA 3320, Movement Exploration for Elementary Education Majors that meets on Monday evenings. Students from THEA 3320 will attend this workshop as well as class-room teachers, arts specialists and/or pre-service teachers that pre-register.
