Artis Maths

Artis Maths enables children to explore mathematics through movement, dance, drama and music. The National Curriculum states that ‘mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline’ and that ‘teachers should develop pupils’ numeracy and mathematical reasoning in all subjects’. The performing arts are a perfect way to explore all areas of the maths curriculum – number, measurement, geometry and statistic.

Children can make acute or obtuse angles with their arms and legs, make whole body shapes ‘in symmetry’ with a partner, gallop round the perimeter of a human pentagon, spin ¼ of a turn clockwise or even dance through x and y co-ordinates on a giant grid on the floor.

Artis Maths supports the ‘Teaching for Mastery’ approach. We have focused our programme on developing children’s confidence and proficiency in Number as a foundation for further mathematical inquiry including;

  • place value
  • addition and subtraction
  • multiplication and division
  • fractions.
