Math Storytelling Day
annually on September 25th (since 2009)
Math Storytelling Day was created in 2009 by Maria Droujkova and Sue VanHattum, who wanted the day to celebrated for Maria's birthday. She said, "Tell your math stories—to a friend or on your blog, to your class or to your kid." This day celebrates math storytelling in its many different forms.
How to Observe Math Storytelling Day
The day should be celebrated by making up math stories. Math stories including numbers, logic, patterns, puzzles, relationships, fictional characters, and history are all good ideas. You could make up songs and jokes about math as well. You could check out some resources from the creator of the day to get some ideas, or watch creative math storytelling videos from educators.
