Can movement shift a math mindset?
documentary coming soon
What is the “math mindset” of your students? Do they have math confidence and believe that they can learn math? Do they beg to do more math or choose to do math over a favorite activity?
This documentary tells the story of a two-week, intensive, movement-based learning intervention at a Title I school in Sarasota, Florida. We engaged one classroom of low-performing, third-grade students in Math & Movement activities.
Students began the intervention with low self-confidence, behavior and attendance issues, negative attitudes toward math, and low math scores. In this documentary, you will learn about the intervention that resulted in an immense increase in not only positive attitudes towards math but also a sizeable increase in math knowledge. What resulted from the intervention was ultimately a change in the school’s mathematics community - an environment where students collaborated and supported one another.
