This workshop will take you through a series of lessons developed to boost middle school students’ love and success in math, specifically geometry. Toni Duncan has developed and fine-tuned a dance unit that focuses on angles, triangles, circles, diameters and circumferences. The concepts are supported and enriched by artistic experiences. Pre- and post-tests support her observation that the students get it! Come get it for yourself!
