to Enhance Young Children’s
Mathematics Learning
and Persistence

Games for Young Mathematicians is a program of research and development in early mathematics teaching and learning at the Education Development Center (EDC). As part of this work, we are developing tools and resources aimed at supporting young children’s mathematics learning and mastery motivation and examining the effectiveness of interventions that include family math on preschoolers’ school readiness skills.

have the opportunity to succeed along side their more advantaged peers.”
