If you are considering this book, you already appreciate how important it is for your child to get a good start in learning math. Recent research in child development has emphasized the positive effects of early learning. An early exposure to number concepts will enhance your child’s cognitive capacity to learn mathematical concepts. The purpose of this book is to assist you as a parent in teaching your child fundamental number concepts at an early age.
Given the importance of early learning in cognitive development, Marshmallow Math begins with number concepts that young children can master before they learn to read and write numbers. The book follows a natural progression of skills that starts with simple counting. Addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and other mathematical concepts are introduced gradually with each new skill building upon mastered skills. The book also explores other important math concepts including sorting and comparing, telling time, spatial awareness, pattern recognition, geometry, measurement, and reasoning.
Marshmallow Math provides many quick, simple, and fun activities for you and your child to do together. The activities are appropriate for children ranging in age from toddler through to primary school. Hands-on learning and mental math are emphasized over written work and traditional exercises. Many of the activities described in the book involve the use of counting objects such as marshmallows, pennies, or jellybeans. Having physical objects to look at, pick-up, and count will help to make abstract concepts more concrete for your child.
The unique approach set out in Marshmallow Math will help to ensure that your child truly comprehends fundamental number concepts and masters basic math skills. This will give your child both the ability and the confidence to excel in math.
