Early Math Interest Forum
The Early Math Interest Forum (EMIF) will promote high-quality mathematics learning opportunities for children birth through age 8. EMIF will provide opportunities for early childhood educators to network with others about investigating big ideas in early mathematics content and connections to later math, teaching mathematics as a creative endeavor, exploring and using developmentally appropriate classroom and family materials, promoting family engagement in early mathematics, addressing issues of equity and access to early mathematics, promoting a positive mindset to math in adults and children, professional development resources, and discussing recent research.
