Count Me In!: Using Picture Books to Support Mathematical Thinking

Friday, November 10
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: 218 A

Using picture books to support mathematical thinking can heighten interest, engagement, and learning by connecting new concepts to ideas students may already understand. Whether the concept is Fibonacci sequence, the power of exponential growth, or symmetry, students can make great gains without the stress that may otherwise get in the way of learning. Using literature can allow students to approach a concept from a different perspective.

This session introduces participants to grade-appropriate titles to use for teaching math concepts, as well as methods for using the titles to engage students in high-level discussions about the material.
