This paper describes results of a study that sought to answer the question, “How does
integrating dance and math in an intense co-teaching model of integration affect student
attitudes toward learning math?”. The goal of the dance/math project was to engage
students in math in ways that reached students’ multiple intelligences and encouraged
students to make complex connections and try new problem solving techniques. The
classroom teachers, who designed and implemented the project, hypothesized that
students who worked with a dancer once a week to learn math concepts would become
more engaged in mathematics and have more successful and positive experiences with
mathematics than students who did not work with a dancer.
