The Mathical Book Prize aims to inspire a love of mathematics in the everyday world in children of all ages. Each year’s winners and honor books join a selective and ever-growing list of new and previously published fiction and non-fiction titles for youth, which encompasses picture books, novels, poetry collections, puzzle books, biographies, and more.
MSRI will announce the winners of the 2018 Mathical Book Prize during this special event in conjunction with MSRI's Critical Issues in Mathematics Education conference. Conference attendees as well as the general public are invited to attend this informative session, including an overview of the Prize and ways math educators can get involved or make use of educator resources to cultivate a love of math in children of all ages.
The announcement will be presented by MSRI Director David Eisenbud, followed by a reading from this year's top Mathical award winners by Paul Giganti. Learn more: www.msri.org/general_events/23106
