对许多人来说，数学是一门能释放深层记忆的学科。这些记忆中的大部分都包括对数学概念和技能的学习。这种学习对学习者来说可能是充实的，也可能是令人沮丧的，因为数学涵盖了各种各样的难度。这就是为什么一位优秀的数学老师能够对学生的学习产生如此大的影响，甚至影响他们对这门学科的热爱。一个有效的数学老师应该能够向她的学生展示她对学科的热情，她认真教授这门学科，同时尊重她的学生，因为他们可能对这门学科没有同样的能力。然而，最近的许多研究表明，学龄前儿童甚至在进入幼儿园之前就有能力理解各种数学概念(Klein, Stakey, Clements, Sarama， & Lyer, 2008;Clement & Sarama, 2007)。这就是为什么由于幼儿早期的数学知识，越来越多的儿童项目需要在课堂上实施数学教学。早期数学技能的发展为以后的学习提供了基础.
Mathematics is one subject that unleashes deep-seated memories for many people. Most of these memories include the learning of mathematical concepts and skills. Such learning may either be fulfilling or frustrating for learners, as Math covers a wide variety of degrees of difficulty. That is why an effective Math teacher can have so much influence over students in learning and even loving the subject. An effective Math teacher should be able to model to her students her enthusiasm for the discipline that she takes teaching it seriously while according due respect to her learners who may not exhibit the same level of competencies for the subject. is a time when children may first encounter mathematical lessons, however, much recent research has indicated that preschool children have the ability to understand a variety of mathematical concepts even prior to entering kindergarten (Klein, Stakey, Clements, Sarama, & Lyer, 2008; Clement & Sarama, 2007). That is why early childhood programs are increasingly required to implement mathematics instruction in classrooms because of young children’s early mathematical knowledge. Development of early math skills provides the foundation for later learning
