Let Me Count the Ways: Teaching Math in the Library May Seem Like a Stretch. But It's Easier Than You Think
School Library Journal, v50 n8 p42 Aug 2004
Based on his personal experience as vice principal of Fuller Middle School and a former school librarian, and participating in a school-wide initiative that focuses on strengthening students' math skills, the author of this article provides suggestions of various ways librarians can integrate math skills into their library lessons. Math is probably the last thing that comes to mind when you think of the library, but information literacy does not just apply to the written word. In this article the author asserts media specialists have access to a variety of resources and can serve as an important link between math and other subjects.
