Engaging with Mathematics through Picture Books

How can picture books help teachers engage young students in mathematics?

The authors, all leading mathematics educators and researchers, explore many familiar picture books to identify the key mathematical 'big ideas' inherent. They anticipate the misconceptions and difficulties students may have, and share planning frameworks which show how lessons can be enacted and extended.

Each chapter explores one powerful mathematical idea, such as place value, measurement concepts, and data handling and statistics. Find out how Six-dinner Sid can help with ordering numbers, One is a snail, ten is a crab with partitioning, Diary of a wombat with time, Knuffle Bunny with spatial sense, Sophie's Prize with big and small numbers, and Rooster's off to see the world with growing patterns.

The picture books Sophie's Prize and Savanna Dreams are also available from AAMT.
