What MIRANDA ABBOTT and DANCE EQUATIONS can teach you
As a teacher, you already have all the skills you need to incorporate dance into your lesson plans. Dance Equations primarily uses a style of dance called Creative Movement. This gives your students the ability to explore and create their own movements. The math curriculum is incorporated into these structured improvisational exercises.
“But how do I teach math using dance? I still can’t visualize it.”
Think about the mathematics curriculum and concepts as: translation, reflections and rotations. They have a direct application to the physical space. By using Dance Equations exercises, you will see immediately who understands each concept as students explore the three-dimensional space.
“I teach Grade 7, what does Dance Equations provide for older students?”
As mentioned earlier, Dance Equations exercises are not just simple patterning and basic mathematical concepts. The exercises are more complex for higher grades. By using algebra and calculus applications, students can choreograph exercises with numbers as symbols.
