Pre-K Mathematics
Early Childhood Education

Pre-K Mathematics with DLM Early Childhood Express Math was found to have no discernible effects on oral language, print knowledge, and phonological processing and positive effects on math for preschool children.

Pre-K Mathematics is a supplemental curriculum designed to develop informal mathematical knowledge and skills in preschool children. Mathematical content is organized into seven units. Specific mathematical concepts and skills from each unit are taught in the classroom through teacher-guided, small-group activities with concrete manipulatives. Take-home activities with materials that parallel the small-group classroom activities are designed to help parents support their children’s mathematical development at home.
