Math concepts are present in our daily lives and abound in places you may never have considered. Broadly applied math skills help us accomplish everything from assembling furniture to preparing our food to estimating the time we have to engage in our favorite pastimes. Math education’s true goal is to understand math concepts well enough to apply them for life and vocational problem-solving. Therefore, the more opportunities we give children to problem solve, the better they will retain the information for future use.
Math is a universal language that connects the natural world to our minds and allows for creative exploration. Music, science, and art are all knit with the common thread of math. Here are five ways you can encourage your children can make the world their math classroom.
