Program Activities / Description
Hands-on learning, utilizing basic classroom math skills and creative reasoning, to equip students to explore, apply, resolve, and participate in fun, productive activities built around listening, dialogue, and student interaction. Zig explains the ‘how’, then performs on his large world/contemporary percussion setup as an example of using math and music. The emphasis is on active participation, in which students use math language and concepts to play a battery of percussion instruments in small and large groups, synthesizing their learned math skills to a cultural arts context. Reinforced math skills (based on grade level) include, but are not limited to: numbers, counting, math operations (adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing), shapes, odds vs. evens, time, patterns, estimating, reasoning, fractions, measurements, analyzing, angles, graph points, symmetry, measurements, and more. As an extension of the classroom, students will make a connection between textbook math and everyday real-world situations. Content based on grade appropriate math skills (recommended for grades K-2, and 3-5).
