The natural world can be used as a catalyst for exploring numeracy concepts in fun and healthy ways. Doing math outside can include using natural materials in a child’s community to act out problems, finding math in nature, and applying math in an outdoor environment. MMSA is pleased to be teaming up with educators around the state to explore meaningful strategies for taking math learning outside. In this program, K-5 educators are working together to utilize and create resources for teaching Numeracy in Nature.
