Stories to help bring maths alive!

Inspiration for teaching and learning mathematics through stories and creative writing. There are book recommendations, lesson ideas and suggestions on how to create your own mathematical story picture books. Inspired by this website, I purchased ‘How Big is a Million’, a picture book from Usborne to help children understand the concept of big numbers, with a beautiful fold-out poster at the end! I love it!

“I found TEN yummy fish, a HUNDRED warm penguins, a THOUSAND pretty snowflakes, and a brand new friend. But I couldn’t find a million, however hard I tried.”
