Subject: Re: Re: Integrating Literature into Math: Adolescent audience

Thank you for your recommendations! Here are a few I like:

Those interested in literature for teaching math at middle school
level might also enjoy 
Sir Cumference and the Dragon of Pi
Anno's mysterious multiplying jar
Mathematicians are people, too. Volume 1: Stories from the lives of
great mathematicians
Marvels of math: Fascinating reads and awesome activities

High school is much more difficult, but you might like Mathematics:
The New Golden Age for 11th grade and up. It presents major advances
in mathematics in the twentieth century, describing eleven of the most
famous problems that have been solved recently.
