Helping Your Two-Year-Old Learn to Love Math

It's easy for kids — and parents! — to see math as a school activity. We often think it's just about counting or adding or learning math facts. But by exploring the interesting ways math shapes the world around us, we can help our children begin to think like mathematicians and learn to love math.
