About this item

"We want math to make sense to our students, and the moving body is a wonderful partner toward that goal."
-Malke Rosenfeld

Kids love to move. But how do we harness all that kinetic energy effectively for math learning? In Math on the Move, Malke Rosenfeld shows how pairing math concepts and whole body movement creates opportunities for students to make sense of math in entirely new ways. Malke shares her experience creating dynamic learning environments by:

  • exploring the use of the body as a thinking tool
  • highlighting mathematical ideas that are usefully explored with a moving body
  • providing a range of entry points for learning to facilitate a moving math classroom.

Malke pulls from both research and practice to build a framework for this work, reminding us that, "It's the partnership between the math and the whole moving body that creates opportunities for potent mathematical sense making." Filled with classroom-tested activities and detailed coaching tips, and supported with extensive online video clips, Math on the Move shows how movement can enliven the learning process rather than simply offer a break from it.

Malke Rosenfeld is a dance teaching artist, author, and presenter whose interests focus on the learning that happens at the intersection of math and the moving body. She delights in creating rich environments in which children and adults can explore, make, play, and talk math based on their own questions and inclinations.
