Not Just For Math

Don’t let the name throw you! Yes, we love math, but we are on a mission to connect movement to all content areas! We have activities and learning tools for literacy, science, geography, and more to bring kinesthetic learning to every classroom.

Physical Activity Improves Learning

Our program fosters strong mind-body connections that are the bedrock of healthy lives. Research has found an outstanding correlation between movement and enhanced learning. 

Boosts Learning

“Research suggests that physical activity benefits learning. Movement increases heart rate and circulation, enhances spatial learning, provides a break from learning, allows cognitive maturation, stimulates the release of beneficial chemicals, counteracts excessive sitting, and affirms the value of implicit learning.”

Eric Jensen
Moving With the Brain in Mind

Increases Brain Development

“Exercise stimulates our gray matter to produce ‘Miracle-Gro’ for the brain.‛ This refers to the brain chemical BDNF (brain-derived-neurotropic factor). Exercise stimulates the brain to produce extra BDNF which is used to enhance the development of new neurons (and their connections).”

Dr. John Ratey
Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain

Enhances Retention

“The more closely we consider the elaborate interplay of brain and body, the more clearly one compelling theme emerges: movement is essential to learning. … Movement awakens and activates our mental capacities. Movement integrates and anchors new information and experience into our neural networks. Moving while learning increases learning.”

Carla Hannaford, PhD
Smart Moves, Why Learning is Not All in Your Head

Improves Classroom Behavior

“His [Terrence Dwyer’s] research found that exercise improves classroom behavior and academic performance (Dwyer, Sallis, Blizzard, Lazarus, & Dean, 2001) … His research further revealed that social skills improved in the groups who exercised more. “

Teaching With the Brain in Mind

Math & Movement has been peer-reviewed! Our program has been determined to be statistically significant in enhancing math confidence and self-efficacy.

Our Products

Our products are designed with teachers and students in mind. We started off by offering durable floor mats covering various math concepts. Our classic floor mats are built to last, offering years of practice for each new class. 

Since then, we’ve expanded into more options, including stickers, wall banners, and books ranging in Elementary, Middle, and some High School concepts. 

Our Movements

We want to make learning through movement as simple as possible to encourage more educators to give it a try! Active Math Movements are a fun and quick way to get more math practice. Start with adding just 5 minutes of movement a day.

Our Events

We provide in-depth trainings on a wide variety of topics that benefit classroom teachers, PE teachers, administrators, parents, and anyone interested in helping students enjoy learning. From webinars to full school workshops, we’ll help you liven up your lessons!

Time for an Energizer

If you have been sitting for a while and movement is possible for you, get up and do ten jumping jacks. Now how do you feel?

We guarantee your brain feels more alert!

This program allows students who are uncomfortable with math, or who have not typically been successful through traditional teaching methods, feel more confident and less stressed as they move and enjoy the visual and kinesthetic materials.

I have been using math and literacy mats in my classroom. My students love the mats. The movement helps the students in a myriad of ways. Students learn, have fun and work together with each other. The mats are great for collaboration and problem solving."

As an AIS teacher, I love the idea of movement and repetition. This conference was excellent. It’s one of the best conferences I’ve been to in my 20+ years of teaching.

I have seen students use skip counting clapping or tapping movements to help them with their multiplication facts when working on some problems or taking a test. The movements increased number identification for younger students and helped older students become more fluent with their math facts.

I have seen a lot of growth in the children’s fact recall. The kids love to get up and move around and it gives them a meaningful movement break throughout their day.

We were initially hesitant when we purchased Math&Movement stair risers. We didn’t know how they would look, how hard they would be to apply, how long they would last. We should not have worried. The risers were easy to apply, and the quality is amazing. One year later, they look as good as when we first put them up. We’re in the process of ordering another set. Great company – great product!

The math stencil was great for helping our students learn math outside. The students were engaged! They enjoyed being able to practice math skills such as addition, subtracting skip counting, multiplication facts and fraction practice. It will continue to be a great ongoing learning experience with math outside throughout the years to come.

I use this mat in my Family Child Care and all my children love it. From my older twos up to my schoolage children. They love making up their own final word. The sillier the better.

These look great in our school! Very high quality prints, easy to place, and they will work with you to get measurements perfectly. We were in a situation where our risers were all different heights, but Emma was so helpful throughout the process. Highly recommended!

As a special education teacher, I love using these mats in our general education classroom. Every child is engaged and excited to learn their multiplication tables. When I bring a mat out the whole class cheers. Thank you for making math more accessible not just for my students, but every child in our classroom.

I used the Make-a-Word Hop mat to teach spelling words to a second grade boy. His most recent test scores had been 0/10 and 4/10. I spent 20 minutes working with him on 9 of his 10 spelling words for the week. On his post test, he only missed 1 of those 9 words! He was ecstatic over this score and decided to use this methodology at home with his 5 extra credit words. He reported to me that he got all of them right after using the Math & Movement methods ON HIS OWN.

Kids love the big size of this and mat and the many different activities they can do. From K students who are learning there numbers to 6th graders who learn shortcuts to adding and subtracting, this mat works for everyone. I teach P.E. K-6 and students love the games that can be done with this large mat!

These mats are absolutely amazing!! I am a physical education teacher and began using these mats in my class. In one week and a half, every student in my class had improved DRASTICALLY on their skip counting and multiplication. If your students are struggling with skip counting or multiplication, you need these mats! The great thing about these mats is that they can be used with any grade level.
