# Outline of math knowledge for kids

## Table of Contents

This page will not be updated any more. The reason is that I found my kid learns too quickly, and I must see him as a fellow but not a kid any more. Now we follow the "Mathematics Trench" outline to learn. You can search it on Google if you are interested.

My 5 years old kid, Josh, likes math pretty much, he always actively askes me to teach him math knowledge from when he was three. So I picked some topics I thought which are suitable for him as listed below. It turns out he enjoys them very much, if your kid likes math as well, this list may give you a roadmap for reference.
