This charming interaction between caregiver and a toddler reveals a number of very early or "precursor" concepts of math.
A moment between adult and toddler using balls and tubes can be a nice opportunity to explore important "precursor" concepts of math.
Project working with ages 0-3 in Chicago expands, helping us learn more about earliest foundations of math learning.
On November 18th-21st, 2015 instructors Dr. Hynes-Berry and Dr. Chen attended the annual national conference, presenting on the precursor concepts of math for babies and infants three-years-old and younger.
Reading a "touch-and-feel" book or singing an action song with a baby or toddler is setting the groundwork for mathematical thinking and future school success. That's the point of Math All Around Me (MAAM), a joint program between Erikson Institute Early Math Collaborative and The Ounce of Prevention Fund, established to study the math capabilities of children ages 0-3.
