Canadian Early Math Researchers Video Series 

Canadian Early Math Researchers Video Series 

The Critical Transitions in Early Math Community of Practice (CoP) is pleased to present a video series highlighting the work of leading Canadian early math researchers. In these videos, researchers describe their areas of expertise and offer practical tips to parents and educators about how to support early math learning. We are extremely grateful for the willingness of our colleagues to collaborate on this project. The series begins with an introductory video about the work that the Critical Transitions in Early Math CoP has done and is currently undertaking.
