Sum of Powers of Natural Numbers

This article consists of two parts. In Part 1, we construct situations or ‘stories’; in solving the problems posed in these narratives, we derive the different formulae. By relating the mathematics to real-life situations, teaching and learning become lively and enjoyable. It is hoped that this method will encourage mathematics teachers to create relevant stories to introduce some topics of mathematics, right from the early years of mathematics education.
