Can parents playing online games with their preschool-aged children really increase mathematics learning?
Yes, according to a report from WestEd about a project involving families playing popular online games from PBS KIDS. The games focus on math and include kids' favorite characters such as Curious George, The Cat In the Hat, and Sid the Science Kid.
Parents and kids playing together during the summer of 2012 increased preschoolers' scores on the Test of Early Mathematics Ability.
