A New Understanding of Math 




by Brenna McCormick | PNA Kindergarten Teacher

 Think back to math instruction in your school years.  I'm sure it was much like mine, filled with algorithms and abstract idea, ideas that I memorized and used to calculate answers, but did not understand.  In grade school, I was not a fan of math.  It wasn't until I was training to be a teacher and was introduced to math concepts visually and creatively that I started to enjoy--and truly understand-- math.  Suddenly, when I could represent and explain them visually, those algorithms and abstract ideas made sense.
