Any adult can help develop math concepts in children, beginning at a grass roots level by practicing developmentally-appropriate, playful learning. “Mathemize” everyday experiences to ignite children’s curiosity and respond to questions with easy to relate to examples. Allow children to demonstrate competency and build confidence, by adding movement to increase engagement and a big dose of silliness to boost the fun.
It’s valuable for parents to assimilate the paths or layers of thinking that young children go through to master these concepts. For instance, counting seems like a simple activity, but it goes beyond number recognition. To become a proficient counter, a child needs to understand one-to-one correspondence (one number for one object) and the principle of cardinality (last number in a series is the total number in that set). For example, if you have three and add two, the total is five without having to start back at one. Cardinality is crucial in moving forward to addition.
While working memory is an important component of succeeding in math, resetting how we think about math is also necessary. If kids think that math isn’t for them — either you get it or you don’t, and they don’t — they aren’t going to feel hopeful or even motivated about learning. This way of thinking about math has parallels to psychologist Carol Dweck’s research on the different mindsets that people have when it comes to learning things.
