“We want math to make sense to our students, and the moving body is a wonderful partner toward that goal.” —Malke Rosenfeld
Kids love to move. But how do we harness all that kinetic energy effectively for math learning? In Math on the Move, Malke Rosenfeld (creator of Math in Your Feet) shows how pairing math concepts and whole body movement creates opportunities for students to make sense of math in entirely new ways. Malke shares her experience creating dynamic learning environments by:
- exploring the use of the body as a thinking tool
- highlighting mathematical ideas that are usefully explored with a moving body
- providing a range of entry points for learning to facilitate a moving math classroom.
The book is filled with classroom-tested activities and detailed coaching tips, and supported with extensive online video clips.

Malke Rosenfeld delights in creating rich environments in which children and their adults can explore, make, play, and talk math based on their own questions and inclinations. Her upcoming book, Math on the Move: Engaging Students in Whole Body Learning, will be published by Heinemann in Fall 2016.
