to Enhance Young Children’s
Mathematics Learning
and Persistence

Games for Young Mathematicians is a program of research in early mathematics at the Education Development Center (EDC), funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) (award number 1348564) and the Heising-Simons Foundation (award numbers 2015-023 and 2016-133).

As part of this work, we are developing tools and resources aimed at improving young children’s mathematics learning and mastery motivation and examining the effectiveness on preschoolers’ school readiness skills.
