# Novels with Math Content

*By Kellee On September 15, 2013 · 3 Comments · In Book List*

**Well I couldn’t leave out math, could I?!?!
Last Sunday I posted my list of novels I came up with for a science teacher (plus more!) and today I wanted to do the same but for math. I taught with a math teacher who wanted to build a classroom library of books with math content in it and I was happy to send her a list. **

**This list is was originally a list for a 6th grade teacher to use as read alouds and/or independent reading, but as I have worked on expanding it, it has grown to include books for older and younger students. I didn’t include many picture books though there are tons of math picture books. I tried to stay with 4th and up.**

*This list contains books that I recommended to her and have read as well as books that I added this week because of research and with the help of some friends on Twitter*.
