SINCE THE LAUNCH OF OUR WEBSITE IN MARCH 2017, IT HAS BEEN ...
Thank you for visiting the MathThroughStories.org website, which was launched on Thursday 2nd March 2017 to coincide with the year's World Book Day.
Whether you are an experienced teacher, a teacher trainee, a teacher educator, a parent, a researcher or a policy maker, we hope you will find this website interesting and useful. Specifically, we want to share with you the benefits of teaching and learning mathematics through stories and creative writing, as well as to offer practical ideas for teachers (and parents) on how to embrace this approach.
This website has been designed and continuously developed based on the feedback we receive from the key stakeholders as mentioned above. There are plenty for you to do on this website, including, but not limited to, discovering new and classic mathematical stories for children and young adults using our database of recommendations which is the largest of its kind; learning how to guide your children to create their own mathematical picturebook from some of our favourite authors and illustrators; and reading about our latest research projects and findings. Please take your time to explore the website using either the menu bar at the top of the page or from the menu below.
Finally, consider subscribing to our monthly newsletters using the Subscription box, and please help spread the word about our project and its website :-)
