Title: The Surprising Importance of Early Maths

Given that the pandemic’s learning loss is worse in math, what should we do in early math? Is there a science of early math education? We will discuss these questions, focusing on five surprising research findings about early mathematics, including its predictive power, children’s math potential, educators’ understanding of that potential, the need for better curricula and teaching supporting equity, and what we know about the importance of using research-based learning trajectories. Finally, we share the result of decades of research and online resources we are developing for teachers and other educators that promote asset-based equity.
