Grades K-6

Mathematical understanding begins with the youngest children. Its influence on the long-term academic success of children is enormous. Yet foundational math concepts—such as patterns, size and shape, and location and direction—are seldom emphasized in the early grades, when they really count. Without them, children can struggle to understand the more complex mathematical thinking they need later in life.

Many preschool and elementary school teachers are unprepared and uncomfortable teaching math, which can cause them to avoid the subject and inadvertently continue a cycle of low math achievement.

Erikson Institute’s Early Math Collaborative helps give children a strong start by increasing the quality of early math teaching through professional development, targeted research, and sharing information on foundational mathematics.
