Math & Movement is a kinesthetic, multi-sensory approach to teaching math that incorporates physical exercise, stretching, cross-body movements, and yoga.

The program uses visually pleasing floor mats that allow children to practice basic skills while using visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning modalities.

Math & Movement increases fluency and deepens conceptual understanding of the math concepts included in the Next Generation Learning Standards. 

Math & Movement leads students through researched-based and classroom-tested exercises that result in mathematical competency and confidence.  

The series of “math movements” are uniquely designed to build number sense by including moving and counting with varied voice levels. The math movements improve students’ basic math and reading skills, critical thinking, and a child’s ability to focus and learn. 

Activities included in the workshop are aligned to specific goals in the Next Generation Learning standards. 

In this workshop, you will learn: 

  • Why exercise increases learning
  • How to use Math & Movement to meet the Next Generation Learning Standards
  • Easy-to-apply and powerful techniques for extra math practice and brain breaks
  • How to train your students to develop their own Math & Movement exercises
  • Methods for documenting the effectiveness of these strategies
  • Grant opportunities and about the National Math Foundation
