Developed for pre-service primary teachers and practicing teachers, this book is also a valuable reference for early childhood educators, researchers, numeracy consultants & learning support staff.
As in previous editions of Mathematics for Children, this edition aims to support teachers at all levels of mathematics education—from early childhood to tertiary education—to develop their knowledge and understanding of mathematics by encouraging them to reflect on children’s learning and their own teaching of mathematics.
Mathematics for Children 4e continues the successful constructivist approach to learning of previous editions. It focuses on children developing their own mathematical ideas through growth and understanding of mathematical concepts, while challenging children to think mathematically.
Each chapter has been updated to incorporate the most recent significant research, changes to curricula and to teaching practices—in this sense, Mathematics for Children is a valuable and rich source of information for both practitioners and researchers.
