All work, all play: How Math & Movement promotes education with recreation

Math: it can be a dreaded word for some students, and the teachers tasked with giving those students the building blocks in the subject they’ll need to succeed. Regardless of a child’s proficiency in math, every student benefits from a learning environment that invites them to flex more muscles than their brain.

Enter Math and Movement, the day-long course that teaches children math in the most recreational of senses. The course had two sessions, both held in the classroom of ORAU’s MC-100 building. One session was with rising first through third graders, and the other rising fourth through sixth. Both saw students engaged in a variety of games, indoors and outdoors, centered around math concepts and problems appropriate for the respective age groups.
