Mathematizing Children Books: Discovering the Joy and Wonder of Mathematics in Favorite Stories
Monday, Nov. 25, 2013 | 1 - 1:45 p.m. EDT
Dr. Allison Hintz, Assistant Professor & Dr. Antony Smith, Associate Professor at the University of Washington, Bothell
Reading and being read to is a favorite pastime for many children at home, in school, and at the library. While stories and books cultivate a love for reading, they can also nurture a joy in mathematics. We will share how to find the wonder of mathematics in the pages of children’s books and “mathematize” different kinds of texts. Let’s explore how popular children’s books, like the ones right on your shelf, can foster rich mathematical discussion!
Allison Hintz is an assistant professor in the education program at the University of Washington, Bothell. Her research and teaching focus on mathematics, specifically studying how to engage children in mathematically productive and socially supportive discussions.
Antony Smith is an associate professor in the education program at the University of Washington, Bothell. His teaching and scholarship focus on content-area literacy assessment, instruction, and professional development.
