The Importance of Foundations When Learning Basic Math Concepts




All of the learning resources provided by Adapted Mind Math are designed to guide students and teachers through concepts that build on top of one another. Some of the resources you can find online with Adapted Mind Math include quizzes, practice sheets, and lessons to improve understanding on a multitude of basic math concepts.

Starting with basic concepts like the number line, addition, and subtraction, beginning math is best learned as a linear progression of ideas. Unfortunately, if a concept is missed, everything that comes after it will be difficult or impossible to understand. That is why additional practice and reinforcement of trouble spots in a student’s learning are imperative. The ability to practice and solidify fundamentals is one of the key ingredients to ensuring scholastic success for any student. By continuing to drill a concept until it is fully grasped, mathematics becomes a tool instead of a mystifying hurdle.
