              SUGGESTED LITERATURE - T2T FAQ

  Since we started the Literature and Mathematics FAQ in our
  Teacher2Teacher area, users have been submitting suggestions
  of literature with a mathematics theme. Besides being great
  ideas for classroom use, they also are good suggestions for
  summer reading.
