Option 1 : Naming numbers from 1 to 10

The** teaching of mathematics** should be done in a simple to complex ways so that the students at the beginning of learning mathematics could easily understand the basic fundamental concepts such as division, multiplication, addition, and subtraction.

- The teaching of mathematics should be done in a
**pre-defined order**that is psychologically organized as per the needs of the students. The development of children's abilities for mathematization is the main goal of mathematics education.

__Key Points__

- The children will be able to attain expertise in mathematics when their basic concepts are well-cleared and it will also help them to learn the higher-level concepts of mathematics in a more effective way.
- The children in their initial years even before their schooling, had started their process of learning numbers.
- They are
**able to verbally speak the counting**but it depends on the individual differences. - They are made familiar with rhymes that teach the numbers while playing. The children imitate them and try to speak the numbers verbally.
