Book Recommendations

Recommended story books for mathematics teachingRecommended story books with a focus on an aspect of mathematics.

Mathematics is already well catered for in the 'non-fiction' department. However, there are many story books which can be used to support mathematical learning too; often without the 'learner' realising it. Almost any story can be used to develop one mathematical idea or another.

However, some stories compliment mathematical concepts because they were designed that way...  What follows is a list of books with very obvious mathematical themes as a starting point.

Please note:

  • Each book in each list is linked to via an associate link - this means that should you purchase a book via a link here this website will gain a (very) small percentage (as a 'thank you' from Amazon). It does not affect the price you pay.
  • And (importantly) the books are listed here because we really do recommend them NOT simply because they are on Amazon!
