Arithmetickles, the interactive math show, is on its way to Florida schools during the month of February 2008.  A national touring production performed during school assemblies and for parent/student evenings, Arithmetickles is based on the inspired concept of math plus fun.
 
Presented by ArtsEcho, a New Jersey-based theatre and musical arts production company now in its 20th year, Arithmetickles uses theatre games, audience participation, interactive math, teams of kids onstage, and stand-up comedy to help teach mathematics to children in grades K through 8.

Arithmetickles lives up to its name.  It was created by the team of Sandra and Ben Bendor, who are theatre artists and parents of three children.  Concerned by their own kids’ reluctance to learn math through traditional classroom methods, the Bendors decided to use their theatre and comedy skills to help school children appreciate the world of math.

Arithmetickles lives up to its name.  It was created by the team of Sandra and Ben Bendor, who are theatre artists and parents of three children.  Concerned by their own kids’ reluctance to learn math through traditional classroom methods, the Bendors decided to use their theatre and comedy skills to help school children appreciate the world of math.  They came up with a show that makes math funny and cool, not only for elementary and middle school students, but also for their teachers and parents. 
Recognizing the fact that math is the gateway to technology and science, the Bendors and their non-profit organization, ArtsEcho, created a show that takes math out of the textbook and vividly demonstrates to kids that numbers, shapes and problem-solving are a vital part of our everyday lives. 

From 32 shows in its first year, Arithmetickles has grown to more than 750 shows annually throughout the United States.  Now in its 10th year, Arithmetickles has been seen by more than 1,650,000 kids in 21 states and in Canada.  
Founded in 1987, ArtsEcho not only produces Arithmetickles and Arithmetickles Math Night, but also the concert, “20th Century Music and On” (now in its 16th year) and the Arts in Education Directory of the Northeast.
