Pinterest Boards from Doucette Library at the University of Calgary

Compiled by librarian Tammy Flanders, these Pinterest boards list books appropriate to various subjects in mathematics for grades K-6. While compiled in relation to the Doucette Library’s collection, many of these titles can also be found at OISE by searching the catalogue by title, and at the Toronto Public Library. Please note that you may need a Pinterest account to view these resources.
