Developing Number Concepts Activities for Parents and Teachers To Do At Home

Math Perspectives understands the need to keep students engaged in meaningful learning experiences at home, especially when many schools are in session virtually. We know parents need help with activities they can do with their children so we’ve developed Activity Cards for some of the activities from Developing Number Concepts that parents can easily do with their children. In addition, we are sharing a list of games compiled by Dr. Ruth Parker of the Mathematics Education Collaborative that families can play to help children develop mathematical reasoning while practicing basic facts. Repeatedly playing these games supports student learning and deepens understanding.
