Mathematical skills which include reasoning and sequencing lead to problem solving skills, the foundation for all future learning. It has been proven that children learn mathematical skills best from concrete, hands-on experiences. And, there are lots of educational toys that teach mathematical concepts while still keeping the fun. A set of building blocks, for example, provides opportunities for the child to discover spatial relationships and the relation of parts of the whole. Children develop problem-solving skills as they construct, design, and assemble materials. Toys that focus on categorization, sequencing, and patterning help to foster a basic understanding of mathematics.
