Math Fluency
- patterns, math facts, and fractions of length -

This program is not being offered at this time. Please see Phil's new outdoor in-person presentation and his virtual programs.

Phil and the students play and say their math facts with West African rhythms.

– Math Fluency –
Phil uses drum rhythms to teach and reinforce math facts: doubles & doubles + 1, skip counting, and multiplication.

He begins by showing the students how to clap their math facts with drum rhythms from Latin America (Phil offers separate primary and intermediate presentations with appropriate grade-level content).

Using popular Boomwhacker tubes and his Indonesian xylophone, Phil shows how the same fractions of length are used to make music in Indonesia, Mexico, China, Ghana, and the Caribbean!

Finally, Phil gives your teachers and students a free downloadable CD with all of his math facts tracks to practice at home and school.

– Rhythm and Math Night –

At the Rhythm and Math family night, the kids learn how to make musical instruments with geometric shapes and fractions, and apply their knowledge to build origami poppers and tube drums. (See Phil's YouTube video on how to make an origami popper - bottom right).

Then, they join together to form a giant drum circle featuring rhythms from West Africa, Brazil, Japan, and Indonesia!

Phil shows how to make an origami popper for the family night.
