The Development of Mathematical Thinking

At DreamBox learning we want to support teachers and parents in their commitment to their students’ math education. So we’ve created this math development timeline to help you understand the cognitive development and the appropriate math concepts children should be learning at each age from 4 to 8 years old. And we’ve suggested some appropriate ways that you can support math learning at each stage of development.
