Kids love to move. ACTIVE BODIES = ACTIVE BRAINS
JUMP2Math is a kinesthetic, multi-sensory approach to teaching Math that incorporates physical exercise, stretching, cross-body movements, cooperative learning, and visually-pleasing floor mats. This active Math program allows parents, students and teachers to enjoy active learning together while traveling to each interactive Math station. Life-size math board games, giant manipulatives and colourful activity Math Mats will be placed in your school gymnasium.
This program shows how movement can improve students’ mental and physical well-being and contribute to their joy in learning Math.
But did you know?
There’s a growing body of research that shows how physical activity helps not only kids’ health but also kids’ abilities to learn? The physiological changes from physical activity include increased blood and oxygen flow, and the creation of new brain cells.

With our JUMP2Math program activities and games, students literally see the Math. They get physical with it. They play with it. They discover the patterns and find solutions on their own and collaboratively in teams. Parents (and teachers on JUMP2Math Day) can strengthen these ideas and support their students as they experience success with Math concepts. A website portal with hundreds of activities for both teachers and parents will be included and actual Math mats will be available for purchase. These games and activities have the power to change students’ lives!
ALL MATH GAMES ARE COOPERATIVE. (designed to require students to work and cooperate with one another, in order to find the solution or succeed as a team).
