The Math and Number center should be located in an area with nearby shelving to store games, counters, and other math items.
A table for playing games and doing counting activities is an important feature of this area. Also, storage shelves and bins for holding counters and other math supplies is about all you will need. Optional equipment would be to have a dry erase board for children to write on.
