TanTan HI Mathematical Illustrated Stories Allow children to meet Systematic mathematical concepts Linking kindergarten and elementary school mathematics courses

Through stories, sometimes interesting and humorous, And stories sometimes true and moving.


Mathematics in EverydayLife

It is easy to think that mathematical concepts are separated from our everyday lives. But mathematics cannot be thought apart from our lives. While the symbols and representation of mathematics can be very abstract, the information these symbols and representations contain express our daily lives and relationship between objects. Therefore, you learn that mathematics is a system of symbols invented for people to live and communicate with.

Interesting and Natural Mathematics

Tantan Mathematical Illustrated Stories seek to demonstrate the mathematical concepts in our daily lives simply and naturally. Through fictional stories, through real stories, and through stories combin- ing imagination and reality, children will be able to experience how people see and live in this world.

Mathematics Showing New Viewpoints and World View

Children who experience mathematical illustrated stories of various genres will naturally gain not only viewpoints on mathematics but viewpoints on life and a world view.

The Value

Literary approach to mathematical education


Although mathematics is an important method of solving many problems in everyday life, people lived along time without realizing that mathematics is related to their life. This is because they did not receive ‘meaningful mathematical experiences in their education. Mathematical illustrated stories are one of the educational approaches to create meaningful and tangible mathematics education experiences to children.

Mathematical illustrated stories change mathematics into stories to rouse the interest of children and pave the way for easy understanding of mathematics. Furthermore, children are able to gain confidence and a positive attitude towards mathematics through the problem solving, reasoning and communication processes they experience in the stories. Going further, they are able to gain mathematical creativity, mathematical problem solving skills and a mathematical spirit of inquiry.


TanTan Math Story books allow children to meet systematic mathematical concepts linking kindergarten and elementary school mathematics courses through stories, sometimes interesting and humorous, and stories sometimes true and moving.
