Wow! Math dance probably works really well for some students. I think
there are similar ideas in the Waldorf approach to teaching math,
although I have not studied this enough to give examples.
I know I would have trouble getting my students to participate in this
kind of thing at this point; I struggled to convince them to try out
manipulatives, which they do use more or less as a matter of course
now. However, this is a whole new level of risk! I'm curious to see
Thanks for this fascinating discussion!
