Teachers are often searching for ways to better engage students in subjects like Mathematics, which can sometimes be seen by students as boring or difficult. Delivering maths outcomes through movement is one way to make maths fun and exciting; encouraging students to be more active as well as engaging their whole body in the learning. Maths Through Movement also allows students to explore and communicate mathematical concepts creatively.
Maths Through Movement activities enrich each student’s understanding of maths concepts via multisensory, whole body learning.
They also give students an opportunity to make artistic, creative decisions with dance vocabulary and embodiment of mathematical ideas.
Maths Through Movement is suitable for students from Kindy right through to Year 10.
We can provide high quality professional learning for teachers and support staff so they can expand their skills and increase the effectiveness of their professional teaching practise.
Participants are given practical ways to deliver movement-based maths activities for their own class. We aim to give generalist teachers the confidence to introduce movement into their teaching practise, even if they have no prior dance experience.
Participants receive a resource kit with sample activities as well as assessment guides and ideas for further exploration.
The Maths Through Movement program has been developed in partnership with our friends at Ausdance WA.
Lesson plans for Pre-Primary, Year 1 and Year 2 are available to purchase from the Ausdance WA website
Please get in touch if you would like more information on the Maths Through Movement program.
“We LOVE your lessons and I have implemented them into our Maths program.”
