Learn how children’s literature can help students see the real-life applications of mathematical concepts. Each chapter is dedicated to one of the eight Standards for Mathematical Practice, and offers examples of children’s literature that can be used to help students develop that practice. Each chapter also provides guidance for ELLs and students with special needs, so no matter your classroom environment, you’ll be able to use these strategies to make math class more dynamic, engaging, and fun.

You’ll find out how to:

Encourage students to persevere in solving mathematical problems and use multiple approaches to find the answer;

Help students reason abstractly with the aid of concrete objects and visuals;
Guide students in constructing arguments to explain their reasoning and engage in critical discussion with their peers;

Teach students to recognize mathematical patterns and use them to solve problems efficiently;

And more!

The book offers activities for beginners as well as for more advanced problem solvers.
This user-friendly book shows how to use stories to engage students in building critical reasoning, abstract thinking, and communication skills, all while helping students understand the relevance of math in their everyday lives.
