Creating Poetry: Reinforcing Mathematical Concepts

Jennifer Altieri 

August 2005, Volume 12, Issue 1, Page 18

Abstract:
How two different types of poetry, definition poetry and list poetry, can be adapted for use in the mathematics classroom to integrate reading, writing, and mathematics. Teachers will learn to use poetry to integrate writing and mathematical concepts to help children write about different parts of math and improve conceptual understanding.
