From: Marie Trapp <mtrapp@usn.org> To: Teacher2Teacher Public Discussion Date: 2001120309:38:16 Subject: Re: Integrating Literature into Math: Adolescent audience I have been looking at this subject for some time. There are many really excellent elementary level books for this, from SIR CUMFERENCE AND THE KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE to THE MATH CURSE. I begin my MathLiterature unit with these books, then progress to some others at a higher level: THE NUMBER DEVIL and ALICE IN QUANTUM LAND. My students read this individually or I read them out loud, and then the students are encouraged to create their own story. Since I teach in a K12 school, the 7th graders may create a math story that teaches a concept to a lower school class. There is also a great resource on Math poetry; I have it at home, so will look it up if there is interest.
