ABSTRACT
The article reports on children picking up important mathematical skills while involving in day-to-day activities. When children count beads and build with blocks, they pick up important math skills. Young children demonstrate math concepts through play in many ways, including talking, pretending, dramatizing, and making art. Pursuing their own purposes, young children also tend to tackle difficult problems through their play. Play tends to promote thinking and learning in math, and in many other areas, too. INSET: Math on the Computer Screen.
