Connecting children’s literature with mathematics is an effective avenue for promoting problem solving, communicating in mathematics, and make connections between the mathematics needed in multiple disciplines. The paper “Using Children’s Literature […]<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/lexileblog/~4/YjVQdn9dPiI" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>http://blog.lexile.com/2016/11/literature-that-will-enrich-mathematics/Who Schooled the Senate?

Yet, another binary we could use is Publicly/Privately educated. As we sit mired in an election cycle where the nation’s public schools, the Department of Education, and the cost of […]<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/lexileblog/~4/Kz9r74TjMts" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>http://blog.lexile.com/2016/10/who-schooled-the-senate/Math Circles Help Develop Students’ Problem Solving Skills

One is the ability to decode, which is a trait known to humans and how we use language. While some studies have been used to see how well animals can learn this skill, like speaking (the most infamous maybe the work of the Communication Institute […]<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/lexileblog/~4/5AlePDMIkPE" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>http://blog.lexile.com/2016/10/can-pigeons-read/Celebrate Storytelling in Mathematics
