Teaching Math with Children's Literature

Non-Credit

This class focuses on children’s literature as a vehicle for teaching mathematics concepts, increasing mathematical language and writing, and enjoying real world math situations.

Goals & Learning Outcomes:

  • Identify how children’s literature is important to teaching mathematics.
  • Explain the importance and role of story/narrative in the field of mathematics.
  • Select children’s books that model mathematics concepts relevant to your grade level.
  • Plan lessons that preserve the integrity of the story, but allow students to learn and explore mathematical concepts through that story.
  • Participate in class activities from the perspective of a student to better understand and apply those activities to your own lessons.
AFFORDABLE EDUCATION

Non-Credit classes start at $99, and are typically available online. In addition to gaining professional skills, this is a perfect opportunity to acquire recertification points, professional development credits, or continuing education units (CEU’s).
