This is an experiential study to integrate Math with Kannada. It is based on the belief that an integrative approach can help students to visualize Math concepts by making them less abstract when used in the context of stories and poems. The purpose of this study was to get an experience of integrating Kannada and Math and understand what it entails. The study was conducted in a government school and the participants included students of Classes 2, 3, 4 and 5, who were yet to achieve basic competencies in Kannada and Math. The study is concerned with the experience of designing and implementing the integrated approach. The earlier version of this paper was presented at the Seminar, “Teachers in the Current Scenario of School Education”, held at Mysore in April 2018.
