Welcome to MathWord Press

At MathWord Press we are committed to using literature to teach common core concepts in math. And we adhere to one additional caveat: we must choose good literature. If we’re going to introduce children to a book, we have the responsibility to make it a good book.

Literature provides a meaningful context for mathematics. Good literature speaks to the heart of a child and can develop the important connections that reinforce knowledge. A good story could help children realize the variety of situations in which people use mathematics for real purposes or provide a way for them to make mathematics learning personal.

And more: a good story or a silly rhyme can make math lessons fun! read more
