Teacher Training

Moving Through Math trainers travel to all 50 states to provide classroom demonstration teaching, present workshops, and coach teachers. Professional development for educators includes 3-hour workshops, 6-hour workshops, multi-session courses, and Summer Institutes.

Our professional development is active! Teachers get out of their chairs and experience arts-integrated learning. We practice the classroom management and performance skills required to teach each lesson. And we all dive deeply into NCTM and Common Core mathematical standards and practices.

Our overwhelming response from participants is, “I wish I had learned math this way. I now understand things that I never really got before,” and “I can’t wait to share this with my students!”

The 5 Pillars of Moving Through Math

Music and Movement

1: Pattern Foundations in Music, Dance, and Mathematics

Students explore how patterns form the building blocks of music, dance, and mathematics. Students leverage their deeper understanding of pattern to unpack the foundational structures of mathematics.


2: Grouping Games for Teaching the Language of Mathematics

Students collaborate in small groups to plan, rehearse, and perform mathematical situations. Children use the Language of Math to precisely describe their thinking.


3: Moving Through Math
Toy Stories

Young students manipulate small toys and found objects to tell mathematical stories. Using the storyteller’s skills of voice, gesture, and facial expression brings these mathematical tales to life.

Visual Literacy

4: What do you See? Math Talks

Students look at pictures, drawings, or models and freely describe what they see. Through the gradual introduction of math terms, students refine their observations to describe the mathematics of the situation.

Creative Movement

5: Spatial & Geometric Concepts

Students use their bodies to explore how objects, lines, and shapes transform and move through space. Creative movement adds a powerful dimension to the study of geometry.
