We tell stories **about** **mathematics**, about **mathematicians**, and about d**oing mathematics**. We do this because **we enjoy it**, because the students like it and because we believe that it is an effective instructional tool in the teaching of mathematics.

There is a high **correlation** between the students’ level of **motivation** and their **achievements**. The ability to motivate students is a very important teacher characteristics.

It is our **aim** to show that through stories we can make mathematics more accessible to students, as well as more engaging.

Students are introduced to mathematical stories of different kinds, such as stories that provide a frame or a background to mathematical problems, stories that deeply intertwine with the content, and stories that explain concepts or ideas.

Stories can be oral, pictorial, written, or film media presented/made by teacher or students.
