Comics in the Classroom: The Index

Comics in the Classroom is a feature on the Cube that spotlights comics that could conceivably used as teaching aides. The idea is that a lot of students find textbooks dense and hard to grasp, so why not present the material in a more inviting, entertaining, and digestible way? Why can't we use comics for history classes, for science classes, for math classes?  The goal is to eventually have a comprehensive list that can be used in the classroom.

The spotlighted comics thus far are:

1. Logicomix: An Epic Search for Truth — a comic about Bertrand Russell, mathematician, philosopher, and logician

2. The Cartoon Introduction to Economics: Valume Two: Macroeconomics — a visual, humorous guide to macroeconomic concepts.
