David M. Schwartz

David M. Schwartz is the author of over 50 math and sci­ence books that get read­ers to learn, laugh, think and howl with delight. With the same ener­gy, clar­i­ty and humor that he uses in his books, David has wowed audi­ences at schools, libraries and edu­ca­tion con­fer­ences in every state and on every con­ti­nent north of Antarc­ti­ca.

An accom­plished sto­ry­teller and an inno­va­tor in pre­sent­ing math­e­mat­i­cal infor­ma­tion in engag­ing ways, David uses humor and a wealth of visu­als to inspire and inform. Place val­ue and num­ber sense become an extrav­a­gan­za of ever-larg­er bags of pop­corn. Ratio and pro­por­tion come alive through the amaz­ing abil­i­ties of ani­mals in com­par­i­son with humans. Show­ing copi­ous exam­ples of stu­dent work, David illus­trates ways that children’s lit­er­a­ture can trans­form the math­e­mat­ics and sci­ence class­room.
