Summary The article examines the relevance of mathematics and science to story. It aimed to explore how mathematics and science teachers experienced its subject cultures, to identify the pedagogies that appeared to be subject culture's representative, and to know the ways in which pedagogy was shaped. The result has identified four categories such as illustrations of relevance, explorations of contexts, humanising stories of historical and contemporary heroes, and representations of human endeavour.
