David encourages his daughter to take her first step.



Does the above make sense to you? Do I have to add something to it to make it clearer such as " ... step to explore the world of math?"

    That depends on the sentence before. Just saying "David encourages his daughter to take her first step" without any context would mean that the child is a toddler, taking her first actual step. What comes before this sentence?

    Thanks, Cat.
    There is no more context; it's a stand-alone sample.
    I think your interpretation makes perfect sense.
