Make Math Fun With Math Musicals

Adventures with Newton & Descartes

What Are Math Musicals?

Math Musicals offer elementary students a fun and engaging connection between math, music, and literature. Two furry friends, Newton and Descartes, team up in these educational stories, songs, and videos to bring mathematics to life!  
Math Musicals is an enriching feature of Math & YOU K-5 that allows students to tap into rich characters, relationships, and emotions, providing a landscape for developing SEL (Social Emotional Learning) skills. Differentiated Rich Math Tasks encourage students to make sense of and extend the math concepts presented in Math Musicals.
