STORIES

In The Pleasure of Making 10 and Parallel Lines, two siblings travel back in time in search of their grandfather, and meet mathematicians of the past. Story and history add meaningful context to math. The graphic stories offer math surprise & conceptual insight, with cognitive and emotional engagement.

In Symmetry, Martians plan to turn Earthling brains to mush by teaching them math + coding. But are they underestimating the power of children’s minds? Learn about symmetry as a mathematician sees it: a transformation that leaves an object looking unchanged. The story comes with 3 free coding apps to investigate patterns and relationships with symmetries.

Observing students:

  • “I notice the students are engaged – not just engaged in that they are interested in the content, but engaged in real thinking.”
  • “I liked that every student was being challenged, yet each student was experiencing success and wanted to keep going”.
  • “They came back in for recess and right away got back to testing out their programs and showing one another what they made with their code”.

Teacher experience:

  • “I like that we aren’t getting lost with the coding, and are focusing on developing understanding of the math”.
  • “It really does help me see the math in a different way”.
  • “It integrates with math very clearly – it doesn’t feel forced”.
  • “I found myself noticing things that I wasn’t expecting”.
  • “This makes me want to try more of these activities”.
