Walking a Radian
Touval, Ayana
Mathematics Teacher, v102 n9 p692-696 May 2009
The kinematics teaching strategy is a teaching method that stimulates kinesthetic intelligence and thus offers students an unconventional approach for exploring mathematical ideas through movement. This article describes how to use the kinesthetic approach to introduce radian measure. The article includes detailed descriptions of easy-to-use activities that took place in two classes. Students became involved in the explorations of radian measure, and the benefits of these activities were demonstrated in later classes as well. (Contains 6 figures.)
