CONCEPTS: The Big Picture
How do we grow into understanding math?
- Children who count correctly –
- – say the words in correct order
- – say one word for each object
- – know when to stop counting
- – can add objects they can see
- Children who have this concept can follow a leader’s beat in a simple song.
SingMath gives your child the physical experience of math concepts through music rhythm.
- Children and adults who understand “equal distance” –
- – know each counting number is the same-sized “1 more” (as a physical distance) than the number before it
- – can add objects they can’t see
- – can understand addition and multiplication
- Children who have this concept can keep the melody beat in a song without a leader.
- Children and adults who understand “part-whole” –
- – know that 6 and 3 (or 7 and 2) is inside 9 at the same time as the entire 9 exists
- – can understand subtraction, division, place value, and more
- – can understand fractions as parts compared to the entire amount
- – can understand the elements of critical thinking
- – use the concept to improve reading comprehension
- Children and adults who have this concept can feel the grouping beat and the melody beat in music at the same time.
