Course Description

CEU Course Description

When we consider the importance of early education, we often naturally prioritize literacy. However, new research is emerging to show that early numeracy development may be just as important. The way that the brain engages while learning early math skills can help a student succeed in other subjects - and later in life. Teaching students numeracy in the right way, however, is important: Focusing on math creativity and comprehension needs to be the priority, going forward, for the best chance of student success.  In this course, we’ll discuss why basic numeracy is so important, the latest research about early numeracy development, and methods that teachers and parents can use to help a child grow in this vital skill. 

CEU Course Objectives

  1. Review the latest research regarding how children learn numeracy goals most effectively
  2. Discuss the characteristics of effective numeracy educators
  3. Brainstorm several strategic ways to incorporate effective numeracy education into today’s classrooms
  4. Reflect on the ways children play and learn, and how to leverage those natural instincts into effective learning and teaching strategies
  5. Distinguish between true math comprehension skills (foundational logical topics) and memorization drills
  6. Identify ways to tell when a student is struggling with math
  7. Demonstrate why numeracy is as important as literacy for young children
