For the last two years, I have been travelling across Yergol, one of the educational zones in the Yadgir district of Karnataka. Here, I observed the untapped potential of learning maths through storytelling activities in schools. The process of finding stories which can aid maths learning, aligning it to the learning outcomes of classes IV and V initially turned out to be difficult. However, I found a story titled Muttajjiya Vayasseshtu? (How Old is Muttajji?)i by Roopa Pai. The story, along with its curious characters and complex subplots, throws up situations in which students need to unpack the problems and find solutions.
