Mathematical understandings are essential. We use them in our daily lives regardless of our age or profession. Creating solid mathematical understandings at the elementary level is critical because they are the foundation upon which all future understandings will be built upon. Our understanding of how children learn and process numbers helps us help them become strong mathematicians. Here at Mt. Vernon, we understand that we as teachers cannot build this foundation alone and we value the partnership we have with parents to help their child be confident and successful in their mathematical development.
Hall County School System provides parents with resources to help you. Please visit the Big Ideas page to find curriculum information, activities, and videos to help you teach your child.
The videos below help us understand how math understandings progress and how a child’s mind forms ideas as they grow. With this knowledge and information, we can help our children build strong foundations.
