About the Preschool program

The many dimensions of math

Even for young children, math is more than just a numbers game. Math has many dimensions, including:
    • Number sense (e.g., the numeral “4” represents four objects, which is greater that 3 and less than 5)
    • Geometry (e.g., patterns and shapes, each with unique features)
    • Measurement (e.g., size, distance, amount)
    • The language of math (e.g., more than, less than, equal to)
Spatial relations (e.g., in front of or behind; near or far) Numbers
  • During the fourth year, many children can accurately count up to five items, some can count up to 10, and a few can count to 20
  • Many four-year-olds can tell what number comes after a given number in a sequence up to 10. For example, if asked “ “What comes after 1-2-3-4-5-6?” many four-year-olds can answer “7,” and so forth
  • Given two numbers between 1 and 10, many five-year-olds can tell which is larger
