    Erikson Institute: The Big Ideas of Early Math: The Erikson Approach

    Wednesday, Oct 16, 2013 9:00 - 11:30 AM @ Erikson Institute
    This event is over! Please check the 2018 schedule.
    Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    Quality math education is essential, especially in the earliest years when it really counts. Join Erikson’s Early Math Collaborative in exploring key foundational math practices. Featured concepts can be taught as early as preschool to help prepare children for algebra, geometry and success in school and in life.

    Hosted by: Lisa Ginet, Assistant Director of Instruction, Early Math Collaborative
