In the early years, young students are noticing and exploring mathematics all around them. They are discovering the “big ideas” in early numeracy by counting, finding patterns, comparing values, and solving real world problems. They are learning to use mathematics to make sense of the world around them. From mastering 1:1 Correspondence to understanding Place Value Patterns, young students build on these big ideas to construct a strong foundation for their learning and success in school.
This 2-page training handout from Empower provides a quick-reference guide to 15 of the biggest ideas in early numeracy.
