Dr. Seuss can do more than teach reading; his iconic books also can teach math skills, Northwestern University professor Miriam Sherin writes in this blog post. Whether it's "Green Eggs and Ham" or "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish," Dr. Seuss' books can teach children how to recognize patterns and try alternative approaches in mathematics, Sherin writes. "Promoting our students' mathematical creativity is an important avenue for advancing their understanding of mathematics," Sherin writes.
