Books Inspiring Children to See Math in the World Around Them

One way to bring the subject of mathematics to life, according to the Mathematical Science Research Institute (MSRI), is through literature. According to the organization, “books connect with the sense of wonder and imagination and creativity.” To spotlight such books, MSRI created the Mathical Book Prize in 2015. Each year a panel of librarians, teachers, mathematicians, and early childhood experts selects winners and honors books in five grade-level categories: PreK, K–2, 3–5, 6–8, and 9–12. This year’s selections bring the full Mathical list to more than 50 titles that cross genres and formats, including picture books, graphic novels, biographies, and young adult novels. The Mathical Book Prize is awarded by the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, in partnership with the National Council of Teachers of English and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, and in coordination with the Children’s Book Council.
