Mathematical Mind

Children working with dowels and rings, sorting 3 objects, pegs and numbered board, and a division board.

Math is a life-long skill that children absorb as they grasp objects and start to notice patterns and sequences. The children can count pegs, coloured rings, vehicles, and so on; do a variety of dowel activities; sort objects; notice pairs, and start to quantify objects. This preliminary work builds the logical mathematical mind that is further developed while working with numerals, combining symbols with quantities, and performing mathematical operations.
