I have recently been exploring Pinterest for new ideas with regards to teaching math.
I typed in the search engine "math and art" and came across this great idea.
I think it is beneficial for students to teach math through different concepts. Linda mentioned teaching math through music, I think teaching math through art is also a good idea.
The link above shows how to create colourful 3-D shapes. This would be a great way for students to create their own shapes and then explore angles, side lengths etc.
Implementing math into other subjects is a great way to make math connections to the real world as well. For instance, the teacher could address how being an designer for buildings uses math because dimensions need to be accurate.
I am interested in hearing your ideas!
