Description

Replete with children's stories and illustrations, Math Is Language Too looks at children as sense-makers, storytellers, language creators, and problem-posers. This groundbreaking book, the first joint publication by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the National Council of Teachers of English, explores the ways in which fourth-grade students use story, metaphor, and language to develop mathematical thinking skills and strategies. Included are classroom-tested, hands-on activities in geometry and algorithms and directions on making tools for use in the classroom.

NCTE and National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. 105 pp. 2000. Grades 3–6. ISBN 0-8141-2134-9.
