November 16, 2007, Newsletter Issue #109: Everyday Math

Tip of the Week

Math is all around us. Every day as children play they are using mathematics without even knowing it. Pouring water in and out of pots, measuring and weighing things and counting toys are all everyday activities that build an understanding of mathematical concepts. Learning by doing is a great approach for learning math, and the more your students encounter math, the more comfortable and proficient they will be with it. Try blending some math into other subjects. Have your students draw 4 apples, count out their pretzels at snack time, or find hidden shapes in a book.
