This guide advocates for teaching the vocabulary and concepts of high-level math to children in their first years of life. This is the time when the human brain is optimized to learn any language, even the language of mathematics.
This book focuses on primary school mathematics for students, whether children or adults. It is assumed that no calculators are used, to encourage mental arithmetic. This course uses as much lay language as possible to also be helpful to parents.
