A child plays “hide-and-seek” with a group of bears to determine how many are missing from a larger group. In regards to early learning, games can help understand the mathematical thinking that is going on in growing minds.

Focus on the Child videos are taken from one-on-one interviews with individual children. The interviews are designed to elicit evidence of children’s mathematical thinking. They are not teaching episodes or formal assessments.
