It has long been understood that stories can be used to teach elementary and middle school students mathematical ideas. The objective of this research was to examine how stories can be integrated into mathematics instruction at the secondary level. As a cognitive tool, story can play an especially significant role in engaging students' imaginations. Nine separate studies were conducted to examine what effect different types of stories have on student learning and to provide mathematics instructors with an array of examples of how stories can be used at the high school level.
