Have you ever imagined that your students can explore symmetry through dance steps, gain a deeper understanding on equations with choreographies and make sense of graphs by using their bodies? As nowadays more and more students are struggling in math and have difficulties to comprehend and put in practice what they learn, the need of a universal, accessible and fun way of approaching math is emerging. Maths & Moves is a training where you can explore how to teach maths one step at a time.
Course detailsMaths ‘n’ Moves is a 6 days international training course for educators that offers an innovative and inclusive way to approach mathematics. The idea is to explore, make sense of and gain a deeper understanding of mathematics by simply moving in the space. Using the body in the educational practice, enable students’ experiential participation and attracts their interest, while making the learning fun and effective.
The Training MethodMaths & Moves training course is build upon the foundation of embodied learning.
