Teaching Math Through Dance

I’m watching my “little princess” learn new balancing moves in ballet class, checking some email, and came across this bit of news from my alma mater, about teachers using dance to demonstrate patterns, multiples, and graphing. I went to Sweet Briar College, which has a highly regarded STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education program: http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/2013/01/how-math-got-its-groove-back.html
