Abstract

Teachers are being expected to provide a full range of experiences for their students. But in reality, many early childhood programs have reading readiness and literacy as the only focus. In many situations, mathematics instruction is an afterthought. Many students are not given quality instruction because little time in the school day is left, once language arts instruction is completed. This is even more true for students in half-day programs.

One way to alleviate this disparity is to incorporate math instruction within other subject areas. This can be achieved if teachers are educated in the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' Standards, creative in forming meaningful experiences for students, and believe that math is an equally important area of knowledge. This article provided examples of how math can be taught through language arts, science, music, art, and social studies instruction.
