Math Experiences in Everyday Interactions with Infants and Toddlers
This presentation will support early care providers in their understanding of the early math concepts, embedded in the everyday routines of young children. Participants will explore opportunities for strengthening children's math experiences in their educational settings and identify tangible approaches to help foster a deeper understanding of infant/toddler cognitive development for supporting math concepts for infants and toddlers.
