Math is Everywhere
Math is an abstract way of solving problems. Math uses patterns, measurement, logic and order to describe space, time and other relationships. Toddlers play with math ideas, but they need parents to name the concepts. Parents prepare their children best to do well in school by talking about simple math ideas at home. When parents repeat math words, they help children grow from counting their toes into confident mathematicians.
Our workbook, The Gift of Math: Twelve Math Conversation Starters for Parents and Young Children is based on recent research about how babies and toddlers learn Math Talk.
