A Little-Used Art of Teaching: The Case of Storytelling by David E. Meel, Deborah Gyurko and Michelle Gaspar

Mathematics Teacher, v100 n1 p64-68 Aug 2006

Keywords: elementary education, middle school

ABSTRACT

This article discusses the art of storytelling as a means of introducing new mathematics topics. Telling a mathematically-based story can be a break from the routine and can serve as literary mnemonics full of mental imagery that helps students recall in problem-solving steps. The authors provide a certain story that has been tried by several teachers and discuss how to develop others.
