Overview

Plan an entire year of an arts-integrated mathematics curriculum with ready-to-use lesson plans and resources designed for elementary classroom and music teachers. Eighteen lesson plans combine the mathematics curriculum with music, movement, and visual art to enrich your classroom instruction and supplement your curricula. Author and educator Karin Nolan has gathered primary elementary math and fine arts standards from around the country (including the national arts standards) and created lessons for those objectives found most often. Also included are guidelines for developing your arts-integrated lesson plans to maximize your students' learning and creativity. There is a unique gentleness and passion in music and the arts that one cannot experience or express through any other means, and this book brings some of that beauty and creativity into elementary classrooms. Teachers reinforce both math and musical concepts through enjoyable techniques designed to enhance student mastery. Musi-Matics! has also successfully been used in college classes for elementary education and music education methods courses. This book guides teachers and future teachers through the lesson planning process and through arts-integration concepts.

Editorial Reviews

Donald L. Hamann
Finally, after years of discussion encouraging classroom teachers to use arts-integrated materials in their curricula, here is a book that offers primary mathematics teachers the necessary tools to teach through the arts! Musi-Matics! not only provides lessons to enhance curricular offerings, it provides guidelines for the development of lessons using arts-integrated materials.
November 2009 Teaching Children Mathematics
The musical explanations are detailed, and the author rightfully claims that no musical background is necessary, although teachers must be comfortable leading their students in songs . . . Teachers of primary grades who are looking for ways to integrate the arts or to augment their mathematics lessons will find this book helpful.
Diane Persellin
Karin Nolan has developed a text that integrates age-appropriate music and math concepts for primary school students. Lesson plans are written clearly, and teachers do not need a background in the arts to use this book. I especially appreciated the many hands-on lessons throughout the book, which will engage children in music and math activities and lead to more in-depth learning.
