AfterSchool KidzMath Research
Program developers at Center for the Collaborative Classroom (CCC) collaborated with leading after-school organizations to create a program that focuses on number sense, measurement, and geometry. Here’s why:
- Developing children’s number sense is the most important goal of elementary mathematics instruction.
- Measurement is often overlooked in school instruction due to other pressures; outside of school, children have fewer and fewer opportunities to measure or see others measuring.
- Elementary school instruction can help children learn shape names and early geometry concepts but may not develop the conceptual foundation needed to tackle the more abstract geometry.
