Pub. Date: 04/09/2003
Based on the theories of John Dewey, the constructivist view of children's learning, and current curriculum guidelines for mathematics, this latest book in the authors'Active Experiences series provides six clear, concise, and usable guides for turning mathematics instruction into activities that three-to-five year olds will find engaging. MARKET: The experiences included are ideal for use in childcare, preschool, Head Start, and other early learning environments; as well as with early primary-grade pupils. KEY TOPICS: involve group work, investigations, and projects; are grounded in children's interests and needs; and, build, one upon the other to form a coherent learning curriculum. Additionally, each conforms to the most recent standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
