|Location:||MSRI: Simons Auditorium|
The 2019 Mathical Book Prize winners announcement will take place at MSRI in conjunction with MSRI's annual Critical Issues in Mathematics Education (CIME) conference for mathematics educators and mathematics professionals. 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.
WHAT IS THE MATHICAL BOOK PRIZE?
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. These titles are as varied as the intersection between literature and mathematics — that is to say, they encompass picture books, novels, poetry collections, puzzle books, biographies, and more! To learn more, visit www.mathicalbooks.org.
The Mathical Book Prize is awarded by MSRI, in partnership with the National Council for Teachers of English (NCTE), the National Council for Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), and the Children's Book Council (CBC). MSRI thanks the Firedoll Foundation for their generous support of the Mathical Prize.
