Babies are born math experts

Filed under: Kids,Parenting — hindumommy @ 3:17 pm

According to this study, the brains of babies and young children are hard-wired for math and they can perform math tasks without even realizing it

Next time someone complains about arithmetic being hard, math lovers can defend themselves by saying “even a 6-month-old can do it.”

So what makes most kids start hating math once they encounter it officially in elementary school?

Maybe this study will make educators and teachers re-think how math is being taught in schools. Try to make the subject more fun and engaging rather than a long and torturous class which is filled with abstract concepts and symbols.
