Description: An article presented at the Humanistic Math session of the Joint Mathematics Meetings, January 10-13, 1996, in Orlando, Florida. Haack's article discusses how the literary and musical forms can help develop a path through mathematical knowledge, envisioning example units, novellas, or tone poems around textbooks such as Martin Jay Greenberg's Euclidean and Non-Euclidean Geometries, Hughes-Hallett's Calculus, and John McCleary's Geometry from a Differentiable Viewpoint. Includes references.
