  • Teaching Computation

    Computation is one of the earliest math skills we learn. Children as young as two notice when something is more or less (especially when that something is food or toy related.)

With computation as the basis for all mathematical functions, it makes sense to begin teaching it to preschoolers through this natural curiosity about numbers. The question is how best to do it.

  • Math for Toddlers—Matching, Counting, Shapes, and More

    Teaching math to toddlers can be more fun than you think. In early childhood education, the math skills children learn are at their most basic form, focusing on concepts rather than numbers and formulas.
