An example

Can you hold infinity in the palm of your hand? While exploring area representations of fractions 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16 … and so on, teachers use the Smart Math Story To Infinity and Beyond (a retelling of Rapunzel) to help children discover that an infinite number of fractions fit in a square … and create visual and concrete artistic patterns to share their knowledge with family and friends.

Children thirst for experiences that capture their imaginations, that offer them the pleasure of insight and surprise, and motivate them to come home eager to share:

“Mom, let me tell you what we did in school today!”


The story advantage

A story is easy to use. It serves as a lesson plan. There are natural places to pause for hands-on investigation and discussion.

Story settings, and the math ideas they introduce, are memorable.  They motivate children to attend deeply and participate actively.
