NATIONAL MATH STORYTELLING DAY HISTORY
The Natural Math Community of Naturalmath.com created Math Storytelling Day in 2009. Dr. 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. Dr. 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 Dr. Droujkova share math stories, but the first person to respond, Sue, shared a birthday with Dr. Droujkova, too.
