Using Children's Literature to Make Real-World Mathematics Connections (Open to All)

Presented by: Trena Wilkerson, Latrenda Knighten,

In this interactive session, we will share strategies and activities to incorporate children’s literature in mathematics. Incorporating children’s literature in the mathematics classroom provides students with an opportunity to connect mathematical concepts to the real world and engage in problem-posing tasks that relate to real-life situations and help students make sense of their world. This session will feature award-winning literature from the Mathical series. The purpose of the Mathical Book Prize, awarded by the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, is to inspire a love of mathematics in the everyday world of children.
