When children are born, they are thrust into a world of stimuli. From early on, children try to make sense of their world and put context and meaning to certain ideas. With this curiosity and brilliance, children can also form misconceptions about the language they hear and environmental print they see.

In this webinar, Jessica Bobo, Elementary Mathematics Consultant, ORIGO Education, explored children’s misconceptions that can cloud mathematical judgment and learning. These misunderstandings often cause an unintended barrier to developing a true understanding of early number concepts. Learn the five research-driven counting principles alongside the foundational developmental trajectory of early number concepts.
