Bring Math "Off the Page" with Movement

rosenfeld_emailbanner_1

Movement is much more than a technique for offering "brain breaks" to our students or sprinkling some hands-on learning into our instruction. In her new book, Math on the Move, author Malke Rosenfeld shows how pairing math concepts and whole body movement creates opportunities for students to make sense of math in entirely new ways.

In the clip below, Malke talks about the importance of bringing math "off the page." You'll also see a moving math class in action.
