Early Math Learning: Birth to Age 5

The importance of early education is receiving increased attention at the federal and state levels. To support parents and families in engaging young children mathematically, the California Mathematics Council (CMC) has produced a free online resource, “Early Learning, Math at Home: Helping Your Children Birth to Age Five Learn and Enjoy Mathematics.” This booklet is available for download in both English and Spanish (see links below). Individual articles can be downloaded in PDF format from an accompanying website, http://earlymathlearning.com  


A related publication, “Engaging Children in Early Mathematical Experiences,” was produced by Region 3 of the California Preschool Instructional Network (CPIN) to provide families, early childhood educators, and family childcare providers with research-based early learning experiences focused on the California Preschool Learning Foundations (seehttp://www.cde.ca.gov/sp/cd/re/psfoundations.asp), as described in Volume 1 (mathematics). This volume can be downloaded from http://tinyurl.com/CPIN-Early-Childhood-Math
