Helping Your Six-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.


Understanding shapes is important because it sets the stage for learning geometry. Children start by learning words like "square," "circle" and "triangle," while older children begin to understand three-dimensional shapes and how shapes can be combined to make something new.
