Students sing, dance and perform skits to learn math concepts in Alicia Behrens' fifth-grade class at Desert Willow Elementary School in Casa Grande, Ariz. During a recent class, students learned the order of operations to the tune of "We Will Rock You," and took on different personas, such as Albert Einstein, to demonstrate how to solve problems on the board. "When they can tie movement and actions or song to math operations, it not only motivates them to learn, but it helps them learn those standards in a more concrete way," principal Jennifer Murrieta said.
