Mathematical Tales



According to research, using children literature in math lessons can enhance learning in many ways. It can help build an intangible perception of math skills through illustrations, as well as help students build problem solving skills. In addition, stories can:

  • Provide meaningful context for mathematical content
  • Review a mathematics concept or specific skill
  • Promote the development of number sense
  • Model an interesting problem
  • Explain a mathematics concept
  • Promote critical thinking
  • Increase the level of interest

Math becomes more interesting when a child can make a math connection in a story. When children are reading or listening to a book, they learn to recognize that math is used all around them. They begin to use their prior knowledge to connect math concepts to the outside world. Enjoy the power of stories in learning mathematics with our quality selection of mathematical tales.
