Make them move in math

February 22, 2012

Trever over at Future Teacher reminds us of the importance of incorporating movement and physical activity into your high school lessons. He shares a list of activities to incorporate into your math lessons to offer students the ability to move around while they learn math. People graphs are a fun suggestion to use when learning about parabolas, hyperbolas, and ellipses. And why not have your students get up from their desks and model the shapes of the graph with their bodies? This can promote team work, physical activity, and give a visual all at the same time. Other fun ideas to try are math musical chairs and dice throw games to produce and calculate various equations.
