Maths is all Around You

Developing mathematical concepts in the early years

The development of mathematical understanding is much more than learning to count. Educators are ideally placed to enhance children's early mathematical learning, but sometimes there is unfamiliarity with the maths concepts that can be introduced from an early age. Maths Is All Around You has a strong emphasis on a play-based approach. It presents a broad range of concepts and aims to widen the narrow view that maths for young children is just about numbers and shapes.

The content includes pattern (early algebra), counting, number, early operations, measurement, shape and spatial awareness (geometry), matching, sorting, data analysis and the introduction of chance (statistics and probability).
