Mathematics and Children’s Literature Linked by E-Books




As a link between Mathematics and children’s literature, the e-book emerges from the need to enrich the teaching and learning of mathematics through the use of content which illustrations are made by children from stories included in children’s literature. In this paper we describe some educational experiments with some connection of these two areas that was implemented in Teacher Training with eight/nine years old pupils. The entire process of building an e-book created great enthusiasm in these students and motivated us to further develop this work. Throughout this educational experiment, children had always been available to do what they were asked with moments of great participation, as well as in the final discussions. With this educational experience we were able to build bridges with technology enhancing the learning of mathematics through imagination.
