Rhythm and Number Sense
If you have ever worked with anyone who struggled in math, this book offers you a fresh approach to identifying and overcoming math difficulties. It will help you understand:
- What are the critical early math concepts.
- Why some children miss them.
- Why some adults still struggle with math.
- How music can help with number sense.
Rhythm in music is the “doing” of critical early math concepts.
This and That music sample
Use music rhythm to introduce your children to math concepts.
Teach math the way children learn: through physical experience.
How Numbers Work
- Introduce adults to the concepts they missed or never understood:
- – the equal sign ( = ) as a relationship
- – part-whole thinking for word problems
- – using “different names for 1” (like 8/8) when working with fractions
- – solving geometry and percent problems with proportions
For a sample of this approach to math, see “Using Part-Whole Thinking in Math”
