## When Can A Child Learn Math?

A question that many parents ask is when they should begin teaching their childmath. I found an article that helps to answer this question. The article is from GoArticles.com and was written by Thomsen Lucas.

Math toys help to improve counting ability

Pre-school children needs to learn simple mathematics and most often the onus falls on parents to begin the procedure. It is here that many parents fail because they don’t know where to start from or how to make counting interesting and interactive for their children. Nowadays however there is help at hand since there are lots of creative teaching tools that are available in the market. One of the most interactive approaches that can help your kid learn simple mathematics is math toys. Starting from simple addition to subtraction these toys enable your child to learn counting effectively. The great thing about these toys is it encourages the child to play a game of numbers. As the child enjoys the game he also learns different concepts of mathematics in the process. So these counting toys enable your child to play and learn at one go.

Different types of math toys (in Danish matematik legetøj) are made that are targeted at children of various age groups. When you allow your child to play with counting toys he becomes familiar with numbers and other simple mathematical problems. As he makes progress you can give him toys of higher level. These toys help in the development of mathematical reasoning. It also develops cognitive skills. In this way children can prepare themselves early in life which helps them in the future.

Apart from counting your kid also has to develop his motor skills and for this purpose there are motor toys. When your child starts playing with these toys he improves on his motor skills. When you buy motor skill development toys make sure that these conform to the age of your kid. Toys that are age inappropriate will be of no use because if your child finds them uninteresting he won’t play with them. This will nullify the very purpose for which you had bought the toy.

The process of development of motor skills should be initiated from a very early age. It is better if you start from the age of one month. This means you have to take the leading role in playing with your child. Teach your child to grasp and grip the motor toys (in Danish motorisk legetøj). Toys that can intrigue your child can be great. Gradually teach him to pick toys and throw (some toys are meant to be played in this way). Stack toys help to sharpen motor skills and for creativity there are construction toys. Always be with your child when he plays and allow him to take his own time to play.

Buy Math toys (in Danish matematik legetøj) and motor toys (in Danish motorisk legetøj) from ABCleg for your kids.

So the answer according to Mr. Lucas is you can start right after they’re born – beginning at one month of age.

And then of course you’ve read about the parents that teach their child math while still in the womb? That’s another post!

Have a good day.

## Babies and Children Can Learn Math

I thought you might be interested in this article I just read by Vidal Aponte and published at GoArticles.com.  It is titled: “Teach Your Baby Math – Ya Gatta Help Em!”

Here’s the article.

If you want to teach your baby math you have to help them. This is not something that they can learn on their own, especially since you are teaching them at a very young age. Below, you will get more information on this so continue reading.

* If you want to teach your baby math you are going to be happy that you did invest in this later in life. It is not as difficult as you may think to teach this to your baby either. With just a few minutes a day you can be helping your baby learn math.

* Have people told you that it is impossible to teach your baby math? There are many people that will try to “burst your bubble” but you should never allow them to do this since it really is possible for you to start helping your baby learn math. You can even start as soon as 1 month after the baby is born.

* Within the first six years you child has the ability to learn quickly and absorb what they are learning quite quickly. This knowledge will be deeply rooted in them and will not leave as easily as some things that will be learned later in life. Make sure you take advantage of this time in their life so that you will be able to enjoy the benefits of what they have learned later in life.

* When you allow yourself and your baby to work on math together you are allowing you and your baby to bond as well as your baby to learn a very beneficial skill of mathematics. Bonding with your child is important and when you are doing it in a way such as this you will be “killing two birds with one stone”.

* One of the best things that you can do when helping your baby learn math is to have a great attitude. When you have a great attitude and allow your baby to see that learning is fun. When babies and children see that things are fun they are going to be able to learn much quicker. You can add some more fun into the mix by singing and playing games while trying to teach your baby math.
