About M.A.T.H.

Math Access for Teachers and Home Care providers (Math At Home) is a University of Illinois at Chicago College of Education project funded by CME Group Foundation. Math At Home is a free access online professional development center to help family home care providers, teachers and parents develop early math skills in children.


Math at Home is designed for home child care providers, teachers and parents for use with children ages birth through Preschool.

Goals and Objectives

The goal of MATH is to provide professional development for home child care providers in the State of Illinois to assist caregivers in helping the children they serve with math literacy. This goal will be achieved by providing professional development in math literacy that can be accessed online. MATH will employ the following three essential components linked to the early learning math standards in order to achieve the stated goal:

  1. Knowledge about how to set up an environment to enrich and foster mathematical literacy (space, equipment, and design);
  2. Knowledge about how to teach and facilitate math activities and lessons for children ages 0-5; and
  3. Knowledge about mathematical concepts necessary for the teacher/provider to know in order to teach and facilitate mathematical learning.
