Early math is big

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.
