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.
