Mini math lesson for parents.

If you want to know what your children truly understand about math at this point in their lives, ask them why numbers are important, why they exist, what do we use them for. They show understanding when they can say “we use numbers for….”; counting to keep track, time (seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years), distance, forces of pressure, sizes, building, coding language, measuring height, width, depth, weights, amounts, temperature, location and identification in phone numbers and addresses. At least those.
