Math Moves!

Description: Math Moves! presents over eighteen unique interactive components where visitors playfully investigate ratios and proportions in a fun and non-threatening setting. Enacting math can be a powerful tool for exploration and understanding. In Math Moves! visitors use their bodies, their gestures and their words to set up, measure, describe and compare ratios and proportions. The exhibit encourages a collaborative approach to problem solving with open-ended activities that provide opportunities for visitors to talk about solutions to the exhibit's challenges. Math Moves! stimulates imagination and builds math muscle in visitors of all ages. Hands, mind and body get involved in exploring ratios and proportions, fractions, geometric similarity and more. Understanding ratios and proportion is a must for student success in middle and high school mathematics. But ratio and proportion are constants in everyday life too. From adjusting ingredients in recipes to planning a household budget, facility with ratios and proportions is essential. Math Moves! links the motivation and energy of free-choice investigation with the satisfaction of discovery and personal meaning-making.
