1. Compare and Measure
Episode #1: This episode is about measuring.
Children learn mathematics through comparing, describing and measuring the objects they handle and observe during everyday activities. Through experience and play they compare and learn to work out which objects are longer, shorter, heavier, lighter, or hold more or less.
Families help children to learn when they encourage children to compare, notice and describe, in everyday language, which is longer, shorter, heavier, lighter, or holds more, or holds less.
