Math Literature

I incorporate literature into all content areas. I do not teach Math, but I still have leveled books in our classroom library that relate to Math topics. I included cookbooks because I think they are an authentic form of literature. I believe that incorporating literature into Math lessons allows teachers yet another way to expose students to the complex text referenced in the Common Core Standards.
