Medina (2008) & Sousa (2006) cite specific principles regarding how our brains learn. Research in the areas of Neuroscience and Evolutionary Biology support these principles (Ratey, 2008). This presentation will share how instruction through physical activity as proposed by Medina (2008) positively improves student academic outcomes, specifically in fluency building of basic math facts. The brain rules framework will be shared in the context of how we might see positive benefits in our educational settings.
