– An interesting article about math early learning by Liz Simons, president of the Heising-Simons Foundation, a family foundation that is funding the longitudinal study at Boston College and the Stanford/UCLA math professional development project.

– It’s critical to teach basic math early, at home and in school. The math level of children entering kindergarten is a key predictor of their later school success, as decisive as their literacy abilities, and even more important than their social and emotional skills.

– Young children really enjoy purposeful and playful math instruction.
