Dancing with Geometry

By Jahnavi Mohan

Teaching has been Jahnavi’s calling for the last thirty plus years. She has been in Mallya Aditi International School since 1989, a school which allows her to put into practice her beliefs about learning. She believes that teaching of Mathematics should be made visual, linking it with art and other fields and that students need to get exposure not only in academic subjects but need to develop holistically. Jahnavi has conducted workshops on teaching Mathematics. She has worked on a Math programme with the students of Aditi to help cancer afflicted children at the Kidwai Institute of Oncology. Her paper on Math and Storytelling was presented in IIT Bombay.

About the workshop

The workshop will be looking at a dance form where students will predict the geometric pattern they get. How can they change the dance to get the pattern they need? They will look at the factors that affect the dance form. It is ribbons and a pole. Guess what the dance form is?
