Why It’s Important to Talk Math With Kids | MindShift

Why It’s Important to Talk Math With Kids | MindShift | Elementary Mathematics Education | Scoop.it
Do you speak math with your kids?

 

Many of us feel completely comfortable talking about letters, words and sentences with our children—reading to them at night, helping them decode their own books, noting messages on street signs and billboards.

 

But speaking to them about numbers, fractions, and decimals? Not so much. And yet studies show that “number talk” at home is a key predictor of young children’s achievement in math once they get to school. Now a new study provides evidence that gender is part of the equation: Parents speak to their daughters about numbers far less than their sons.RT @DavidMiller_UK: The language of Maths.
