Math Storytelling Day September 25


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.


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 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 along with her daughter Math Story Day would be shared with friends and family on her birthday, September 25.

There are over 1,500 national days. Don’t miss a single one. Celebrate Every Day with National Day Calendar!

Not everyone is excited about math, Math Story Telling Day hopes to change this fact...
