Jody Cassell brings “Dancing Math” to Spring Valley Elementary

Spring Valley Elementary fifth graders participated in “Dancing Math” with CAPS Artist, Jody Cassell. Workshops focused on the laws of motion as well as learning fractions through set and improvised dance symbols. Students danced the equations 1/2 + 1/4 = 3/4 and 1/2 + 1/8 = 5/8, using numbers that represent the following actions: 1-turn, 2-slide, 3-twist, 4-jump and so on. Jody comments, “I enjoyed seeing the students improvise dance symbols and I certainly appreciate and LOVE the way all the teachers participated!”
