Overview

CD-ROM developed by Maarten Dolk and Catherine Twomey Fosnot
Facilitator's Guide developed by Antonia Cameron, Sherrin B. Hersch, and Catherine Twomey Fosnot

In their Young Mathematicians at Work series, Catherine Twomey Fosnot and Maarten Dolk described Mathematics in the City, an innovative project where teachers helped young children construct a deep understanding of number and in a math workshop environment. Now they and two colleagues from the project have developed a 21st-century approach that provides pre- and inservice teachers with an interactive, video-based, digital context for inquiry into the teaching and learning of mathematics.

Designed for workshop leaders and college instructors, the Fostering Children's Mathematical Development Resource Package consists of three valuable components:

  • A CD-ROM that offers users a multi-media learning environment for professional development on topics ranging from instruction to assessment, and that stimulates action, reflection, and discussion with dynamic video clips, children's work samples, and interviews with students and teachers
  • A Professional Development Overview Manual that provides general advice on teaching in a digital environment
  • A Facilitator's Guide specific to the CD-ROM that includes suggestions for using the video clips; sample dialogue from field-tested sites; facilitation tips; and more.

Fostering Children's Mathematical Development focuses on short video clips from interviews, routines, minilessons, games, and investigations. The clips provide opportunities for teachers to observe, analyze, and discuss critical moments in cildren's development, and then to build a landscape of the ideas, strategies, and models of early number, addition, and subtraction. The Resource Package helps teachers examine children's thinking; investigate their strategies; and analyze how they model their world mathematically.

Users are also able to study teachers at work: designing rich contexts for problem-solving; listening to, questioning, and interpreting students' thinking; drawing connections between mathematical ideas and strategies; and, ultimately, developing a vibrant mathematical community.

Meet the Author

Sherrin B. Hersch is a co-principal investigator at The City College of the City of New York, overseeing mathematics grants funded by several national agencies. She frequently has led workshops using the CD-ROMs developed for the Resource Package, and has field tested the materials. Her deep interest in learning and teaching was shaped by her years working with children as a primary classroom teacher.

Antonia Cameron is a Master Coach for K-6 Mathematics at Metamorphosis. Former co-director of Mathematics in the City, a national center for professional development at The City College of New York, Toni is coauthor of numerous facilitator guides and Contexts for Learning unit books. She is a nationally known mathematics "coaching coach" and speaker on professional development practices.

Maarten Dolk is a researcher and developer at the Freudenthal Institute for science and mathematics education in the Netherlands. He is involved in the development and research of in-service and multimedia in-service materials for teachers, staff developers, and teacher educators in a number of countries. He has been a collaborating partner in Mathematics in the City since its inception and is co-author of the first three books in the Young Mathematicians at Work series.

Catherine Twomey Fosnot is the Founding Director of Mathematics in the City and former Professor of Education at The City College of the City of New York. She has twice received the "best writing" award from AERA's Constructivist SIG and she was the recipient of the "young scholar" award by Educational Communication and Technology Journal. She is the lead author of the Contexts for Learning Mathematics series as well as the Young Mathematicians at Work series.
