Play Teaches Children to Solve Math Problems
Babies’ brains are born to understand big math ideas such as more/no more or same/different. When they play, they use these ideas but they need their parents to name them. Even parents who fear math can teach their child math words like near, far, circle, sphere, curve, straight, empty, full. Say what you see a child do. It is a process, not a test.
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. It is available for pre-order from Amazon, and Barnes & Noble. Release date August 28.
