The concept of even and odd should be taught when the child is making sense of pairs and is well-versed with quantification rather than just learning a rote number sequence. One can also try teaching about these mathematical elements in a story format.
Dan Finkel, founder of Math for Love asks parents to introduce their kids to the adventure of math. Mathematics is not merely about following rules, he says, but asking questions, playing, exploring and sometimes even breaking things. He offers a five-step guide to bringing playfulness and joy into mathematical thinking.
