Erin Scoville's insight:

This exciting activity for students is human subtraction on ten frames.  My kids always like physical activities that get them moving, so I can't wait to use something like this to work on addition or subtraction! A somewhat brain break for kids to move around while subtracting.

Erin Scoville's insight:

Using art and real life design to teach children subtraction and other math skills. Using handson learning toold to reform the way students think about math.

Hilary Frambes's curator insight,

"Even my more challenged students -- and I have about five of them -- the engagement is like 180 degrees. It’s like a different child," said third-grade teacher Beverly Grotts.

The program, called "Artful Connections with Math," was developed by the Pasadena Unified School District and the Armory Center for the Arts. Funded by a \$1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education, it pairs classroom teachers like Grotts with "teaching artists"  who show them how to use hands-on, visual art projects to teach math concepts."
