In my program Math in Your Feet, we use 'movement variables' to choreograph our own dance steps. But, in actuality they are a collection of attributes used to design each individual beat.
When we use the word variable in this design context, is that algebra? I've always assumed that using the phrase 'movement variables' was not mathematically accurate.algebraattributesvariableSun, 12 May 2013 20:14:25 GMTMalkeWhich is the more mathematical approach to attributes - systematic or playful?
https://naturalmath.com/community/questions/256/which-is-the-more-mathematical-approach-to-attribu.html
In my program Math in Your Feet (www.mathinyourfeet.com) elementary students use "movement variables" to help make up their percussive dance patterns. These movement variables are actually a collection of attributes (5-6 options in each of the follwoing 3 categories: foot position, type of movement, and direction).
I'm wondering if using variables/attributes like this in a systematic way (like how you go about determining combinations, for instance) makes it more mathematical? Or is it simply that when you are working to solve a problem (like making a dance step) you manipulate the variables/attributes to suit your aesthetic or needs, with one or many possible agreeable solutions?
Let me know if I should clarify this further. :-)mathematical thinkingmaking mathattributesSun, 12 May 2013 20:11:18 GMTMalke
