World Book Day through a maths lens

What’s your class doing? Have you considered celebrating the day mathematically using maths story picture books?

  • Published: 01/03/2019

It’s World Book Day on 7 March! What’s your class doing? Have you considered celebrating the day mathematically using maths story picture books?

If you’re looking for inspiration, check out our interview with the man behind the MathsThroughStories.org initiative, Vince Trakulphadetkrai. We asked Vince how teachers might use maths storybooks and to recommend some of his favourites. Further ideas for lessons, plus reviews of maths storybooks, can be found on the MathsThroughStories.org website.

Perhaps you’re looking for a good maths read for yourself, with a new nugget of inspiration for your teaching. In the podcast Books that help maths teaching from last year, five maths teachers told us about the books they’ve found most useful.

You could also read the summary of one of our #mathscpdchat Twitter chats: Books about teaching maths: which have really helped you and why?.

Finally, we’d love to know which books you’ve used with your classes and how you used them. Tweet us @NCETM with the hashtag #WorldBookDay2019.
