Literacy in the Math Classroom

My students need math novels to see the connection between literature and mathematics.

My Students

Do you remember what it was like the first time you read a book that you couldn't put down? As a math teacher, I would like my students to feel this way about a novel that will make them love reading and also make them love and enjoy mathematics.

My students are SAS 7th grades taking Algebra.

The students that love math are having a wonderful time in the class, but I do have some students that prefer reading a book in class during my lesson. Even though I completely support literacy, I want my students to understand that math is also important. Sharing a math novel with them can give them the opportunity to read in math class and also learn the concepts that I need them to learn.

My Project

I plan to have a book club in where the students will read a chapter every session and have a discussion and complete an activity that is related to what they just read about. The activity sheet will include questions regarding the reading and the math concepts. My students need math novels to see the connection between literature and mathematics.

Your donations will help me bridge mathematics and literature.

Students will have the opportunity to enjoy a great book and learn the math concepts required by the California state standards.
