For this project I am going to use math literature books to enhance the concepts of measurement, fractions, geometry, multiplication, and division. Students love to be read to so I am using this to entice those students who are a little more reluctant in math. According to research, using children’s 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 to that, children’s literature 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.
