Exploring How to Create a Mathematics-Themed Children’s Book
This poster presentation explores one literacy strategy in particular: children’s storybooks. The creation of mathematics-themed storybooks enables educators to elicit skills from students, showcase mathematical creativity and artistry, and gain student interest. With the addition of a narrative, characters, fun pictures, and word revision, everyday word problems can be extended upon and transformed into high quality, conceptual-based mathematics-themed storybooks. The basic layout and fundamental parts for creating a mathematics-themed storybook will be detailed and discussed throughout this presentation, along with student examples.
