About the webinar
Noticing math around you is an important part of developing math skills. Children can start paying attention to numbers of items and other mathematical aspects in their environment before preschool age, and studies show that this relates to the development of math skills all the way through the end of primary school. Join us to learn how we can all learn to ‘get our math glasses on’ in both the preschool and daily life!
