Moving with Math

Division, multiplication, fractions, patterns, sequencing, shapes, lines, form! These are the concepts your students will comprehend after learning the traditional celebratory Middle Eastern line dance called a debke. During the last two workshops, students work in small groups to create and perform their own debke, incorporating the math skills acquired during the first three workshops! The classroom must have ample space for a line dance that travels throughout the room.
