Thinking about Mathematics ‘stories’ reminded me of ‘**John and Betty’s Journey into Complex Numbers**‘ which has always made me smile.

For a rather different kind of presentation – why not write a ‘story’ ? There are many online tools available, a favourite of mine is **Storybird**.

I wrote a very **simple story on algebra** (like terms) simply to show some students Storybird and hopefully inspire them to write their own (they did!).

Some of my students helped me write **this on sequences**:

….and when they were revising for exams they wrote several more!

**Storybird** is a tool for writing digital stories, it’s great fun and easy to use. Set up an account (free) – choose your art work and get writing! Students under 13 can sign up with parental permission. Note that teachers can set up class accounts for students of any age. **See the details here**.

There is a **training video** available from **Russell Stannard’s TeachertrainingVideos** site.

For more on the use of Storybird – see **this post** on Digital Tools.
