Do you remember being in algebra class and asking "Why do we need to know this? When will we ever use this?" You might even feel that way when you think about teaching Math to young children.
Here is why we need Math. Mathematics help develop rational thought. In Math there is one right answer coupled with logical techniques to arrive at that answer. It is of the utmost importance that children are enthusiastically engaged by Mathematical thought during their early, crucial period of rapid brain development. Helping a child to use their brains in this wonderful way is the gift of an excellent Math program and teacher.
Each unit of our Mad Math Hat curriculum assists children with specific core concepts of mathematics, but more importantly, each unit will assist them with their life long ability to form clear and reasoned thought.
This is why we need Math! And yes, we will definitely use it!
