Supplementary Math Literature:

Combining literature and math is FUN! Lessons are more memorable when they are connected to a story. My youngest son has really enjoyed checking out a lot of the following titles from the library. Liven up your math lesson with literature!

Some of the books below will be more appropriate for young learners, but some titles are great all the way through high school. I've put in parenthesis after each title what the main focus is on so you can see if any match what your child is currently working on. Choose the area you are working on or browse sections by approximate age and/or grade level.
