Teach Your Baby 

Maths

Support All Areas of Your Baby's Development by Nurturing a Love of Maths


"If you want your daughter or son or grandchild to be good at maths, talk numbers all the time. Play with numbers, use numbers, explore numbers, make numbers part of their daily lives.

In short, use this book. It really will be worth it."

- Tony Attwood, C.Ed., B.A., M.Phil (Lond), F.Inst.A.M., founder, The Dyscalculia Centre (https://dyscalculia.me.uk)


"This book highlights how maths can fit into everyday baby care. The simple and well-researched activities and advice ensure that everyone can give their children the best start in life."

- National Numeracy


"I loved reading this book. 

Blending technical and academic detail with an engaging narrative accessible for lay readers - lay to maths, not lay to parenting! - is a tricky enterprise and 100 Days succeeds completely on this fundamental requirement for a book of this kind. 

The overall feel is one of positivity and encouragement and the vast majority of the content is about activities and ways of parenting that are easy to achieve for readers on all budgets and in all family situations. 

The approach is imaginative but also tied to everyday life, making the holistic integration of a maths-friendly parenting style something natural rather than forced."

Within this 100-day maths journey, you will discover:


- Maths ability on entry to school is a strong predictor of later achievement, double that of literacy skills.


- Babies seem to be born with an amazing number sense: understanding shapes in the womb, being aware of quantities at seven hours old, grasping probability at six months old, and exploring addition and subtraction at nine months old.


- The best time to introduce maths is infancy. By the time children enter school, there is already a significant gap in maths skills, and this gap has been shown to continue increasing.


- A parent’s attitude shapes a child’s attitude. You have the power to teach your baby if maths is either something to be anxious about or something to enjoy.


- Your baby can learn maths while boosting all other areas of development. For example, movement will be boosted while teaching geometry positional language, literacy will be boosted while reading a “number” book, and bonding will be boosted while giving your baby your undivided attention teaching maths to him or her.


- Babies will use maths every day for the rest of their lives. That’s why maths is important.
