Math and Movement

About Math and Movement

The National Math Foundation (NMF) is dedicated to empowering communities to work towards the goal of ensuring that ALL Americans, regardless of age, race, socio-economic class, and gender are competent and confident in their math ability and have sufficient skill to be able to use math effectively in their job. Our mission is to foster exercise, healthy eating, and learning through movement as a means to develop a community of math literate members. The two-fold mission of the National Math Foundation addresses obesity and illiteracy.
The National Math Foundation uses Math & Movement as its curriculum. Math & Movement is a kinesthetic, multi-sensory approach to teaching math that incorporates physical exercise, stretching, cross-body move¬ments, and visually-pleasing floor mats. Math & Movement increases fluency and deepens conceptual understanding of the math concepts included in the Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS).
Please see the videos of students engaging in the energizing math-movements and the kinesthetic CCLS activities on the website at
