MATH STORYTELLING DAY
Math Storytelling Day is observed annually on September 25. This is a day to appreciate all the ways math enhances our daily lives.
Math Storytelling Day is a great opportunity to get children excited about math through stories and games. Math stories can include logic, patterns, puzzles, and numbers. Tell math jokes and sing songs about math.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Explore math stories, make up new ones, listen to others tell even more math stories. Use #MathStoryTellingDay to post on social media.
The Natural Math Community of Naturalmath.com created Math Storytelling Day in 2009. Maria Droujkova was inspired after reading a blog post by Seth Godin entitled “What should I do on your birthday?” Seth encouraging readers to think bigger than themselves when making birthday suggestions to friends. Droujkova took the idea to heart and declared Math Story Day would be shared with friends and family on her birthday, September 25. Not only did Droujkova share math stories, but the first person to respond, Sue, shared Droujkova’s birthday, too.
