A Strange and Wonderful Interdisciplinary Juxtaposition: Using Mathematical Ideas to Teach English
Seo, Byung-In
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v82 n6 p260-266 Jul-Aug 2009
Interdisciplinary concepts and methodology are increasingly common in today's secondary schools. However, many interdisciplinary lessons combine courses in related areas (e.g., English with history or science with mathematics). This article examines the use of mathematical ideas in the teaching of literature and writing. Employing mathematical knowledge in the instruction of literature and writing provides another means of illustrating literary and writing concepts. (Contains 7 figures.)
