2 Moving Through Math Workshop Series Moving Through Math is an active, creative approach to teaching mathematics. Students explore mathematical concepts and their relationship to language, spatial reasoning, rhythm, body movement, and the imagination. When students experience Moving Through Math, they learn math concepts visually, aurally, spatially, kinesthetically, verbally, and socially. This allows for a wide degree of differentiation among students, as they deeply explore core concepts in mathematics through a variety of learning modalities. Additional Moving Through Math Workshops and Courses are listed on MOVING THROUGH MATH Repeating Patterns: Laying the Foundation for Elementary Mathematics For Teachers of Grades K-2 Do students really understand why everything in math is a pattern? In this workshop, teachers explore how patterns underlie most mathematical systems. First, participants examine how counting, one-to-one correspondence, attributes, and sequencing are concepts that must be mastered before students are ready to learn about patterns. Then, they learn to lead lessons that integrate rhythm and movement with pattern concepts. Through this process, teachers discover how to identify and teach the foundational grouping, sequencing, and part-to-whole concepts that are embedded inside repeating patterns. This workshop corresponds with the instructional book, Repeating Patterns: Laying the Foundation for Elementary Mathematics, and the children s picture book, Clap, Drum, and Shake It! MOVING THROUGH MATH Multiplication and Division For Teachers of Grades 3-5 Many students memorize the times tables yet fail to master a conceptual understanding of multiplication. Without this critical conceptual understanding, students have no foundation upon which to build. This is why many students struggle with factors and multiples, and later on with fractions. In this workshop, teachers examine how repeating patterns establish the equal grouping concepts that underlie multiplication and division. They then learn to lead lessons that integrate the arts with multiplication concepts. Through pictures, words, rhythm, and movement, equal grouping concepts are literally brought to life. Through this process, teachers discover how to help students move past memorizing the times tables, and understand the foundations of multiplying and dividing with this active, conceptual, and creative approach to teaching mathematics. MOVING THROUGH MATH Primary Spatial & Geometric Concepts For Teachers of Grades Pre K 2 Many young students only learn to recognize shapes in isolation and in base orientation. When shapes are combined, flipped, or rotated, they are no longer recognizable to many children. However, when young students learn to create and manipulate shapes with their bodies, their spatial reasoning skills are dramatically enhanced. Connecting creative movement to visual understanding adds a powerful new dimension to the study of geometry. In this workshop, teachers first explore Meet the Shape Family. They then learn how to facilitate movement explorations in the classroom, connect geometric concepts to movement concepts, and help students deepen their learning experiences through observation, questioning, and discussion. MOVING THROUGH MATH Intermediate Spatial & Geometric Concepts For Teachers of Grades 3 5 Many students find geometric shapes and transformations drawn on a flat sheet of paper difficult to visualize and manipulate. Integrating creative movement with the teaching of geometry literally brings these math concepts to life. Students physically feel lines, angles, shapes, slides, flips, and rotations as they move geometric concepts through space. Physical movement develops students visualization skills, expands their geometric reasoning into 3-dimensional space, and fosters spatial creativity. In this workshop, teachers learn how to facilitate movement explorations in the classroom, to connect geometric concepts to movement concepts, and to help students deepen their learning experiences through observation, questioning, and discussion.
