Math is Everywhere

Last Updated by Carrie Shrier on

When my children were little, we got in the habit of counting stairs as we climbed up or down them. “One, two, three…” counting together as we walked. As we counted my children were learning more than just how many steps there were going into preschool, they also were learning one to one correspondence, and numerical order.

As they got older, we worked on division when evenly sharing candy with their siblings and we figured out how fractions worked while following recipes, and cutting cake. Math is all around us in our everyday lives!

There are many ways you can incorporate math in your daily routines and activities with your children. Helping children see the many ways that math is a part of our lives makes math more concrete and understandable for children.
