Math happening is a routine that allows teachers to tap into students’ funds of knowledge (Gonzalez, Andrade, Civil, & Moll, 2001; Moll, Amanti, Neff, & Gonzalez, 1992). Moll et al., (1992) suggested that children and families have a body of knowledge that they use at home and in their communities that teachers can draw on this unique knowledge during instruction to make new and unfamiliar concepts more relevant and applicable to children (Celedón-Pattichis, Musanti, & Marshall, 2010). and connect the informal math children and families already use mathematics in their everyday life to the math they are learning in school.
