Ways to Incorporate Math throughout the Day

There are so many times throughout the day that math can be taught or reviewed.  Many of these math skills can be brought up while in the car. Talking about speed, which car is going faster or slower on the road. Discussing the digital time in the car as well as the track number playing on a CD helps with reviewing time and numbers. The different shapes of the street signs help with teaching and reviewing geometry. Another way to incorporate math could be in the kitchen. Time can be reviewed with how long something needs to cook for. Measurement is reviewed with measuring the ingredients and also discussing temperature.  Telephone numbers and addresses help children to practice their numbers and to learn their phone number and where they live. These are just a few examples of how math can be incorporated into your child’s day.
