About Math Storytelling Day
Celebrate Math Storytelling Day by making up and sharing math stories.
Everyone loves a story, so this is a great way to add some interest to math and encourage your children to play around with math.
What might a math story involve? Patterns, logic, history, puzzles, relationships, fictional characters, … and yes, even numbers.
This day was first observed on September 25th 2009.. Everything started when Sue VanHattum loved the notion advanced by Dr. Maria Droujkova, founder of the Natural Math Community, regarding commemorating a day like this on their birthday. The story goes like this: the blog by Seth Godin entitled "What should I do on your birthday?" urged readers to consider others while suggesting birthday activities for friends, and Dr. Maria Droujkova was inspired by this. Sue van Hattum concurred with her decision to incorporate math storytelling day into her birthday celebrations.
