Awal Matematik perlu diajar kepada kanak-kanak dalam persekitaran pembelajaran yang lebih interaktif dan menyeronokkan. Adalah penting untuk membangunkan kanak-kanak dengan asas yang kuat dalam pembelajaran awal Matematik. Kanak-kanak secara semula jadi ingin tahu dalam lima tahun pertama mereka, dan ini adalah masa terbaik untuk memperkenalkan awal Matematik. Penggunaan permainan berfungsi sebagai kaedah untuk meningkatkan prestasi awal Matematik serta untuk menyemai minat kanak-kanak. Artikel ini membincangkan bagaimana menyokong pembelajaran kanak-kanak dalam awal Matematik melalui permainan.
