While animated classics such as “What’s Opera, Doc?,” “The Rabbit of Seville” and “Johann Mouse” are projected on a large screen onstage, the symphony, conducted by George Daugherty, plays the original scores, and everyone has a wascally good time. Adults can relive childhood hours spent in front of the tube, laughing at the marquee Looney Tunes characters as well as supporting players like Pepé Le Pew, Yosemite Sam and Foghorn Leghorn. There’s also a guest appearance by MGM’s favorite cat and mouse, Tom and Jerry.

“It’s everywhere. How can we live without it?” said Bayley, referring to the abundance of math in the room and in the world. Bayley is one of a group of California preschool teachers who received professional development in early math teaching through a joint Stanford-UCLA teacher education project. Sadly, her classroom is an anomaly. In a recent Vanderbilt University study of early childhood classrooms, math was intentionally taught by teachers only three percent of the day. Three percent is a travesty. Most children who begin kindergarten behind their peers in basic math never catch up, and children with persistent math problems in elementary school are less likely to graduate from high school and go to college.
