This study aims to explore the creation of hand gestures-based math videos and teachers’ perceptions of introducing them in their math lessons. The videos are grounded in a kinesthetic and creative approach to math education, which is suggested to be beneficial for learning. Following the creation of three math dance videos, three math teachers introduced the videos to their classes and were interviewed on their perceptions of this approach to math education. The teachers have shown interest in this approach and its potential benefits, and would like to be more informed and trained on such approach. Further research on teachers’ professional development as well as retention of knowledge by students is recommended.
