Feb 19, 2024 | Hancock Park

About “Mathing” Tips: These tips provide parents with ideas for math exercises that will develop their child’s math abilities. Just as you should read with your child, you should “math” with them as well, using natural language that makes sense to a child. Doing math with your child is a great way to interact with them and help them learn about our world.

Today’s parent tip for “mathing” with your child focuses on shapes. Geometry is an important area of math. Young children begin learning geometry by learning about shapes and their characteristics. Triangles, squares, rectangles, and circles are all basic shapes that students should learn. Children can connect shapes with numbers by counting the sides or corners of shapes.
