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:
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.
