Overview

Inquiry into Math, Science and Technology for Teaching Young Children uses current theory as foundation for the rich and varied math and science curriculum in preschool and kindergarten. The curriculum in this text easily embraces developmentally appropriate practice, emergent curriculum, Reggio Emilia and the Project Approach. Students can connect the rich math and science curriculum with the national standards in math and science plus the NAEYC Early Childhood Professional Preparation Standards. By using the ways we know children learn best, students are guided to develop their own curriculum for children while incorporating the national standards. The text guides early childhood students to inquire how children learn by capturing the innate curiosity and emerging thinking skills of young children. The writing of this text invites students to explore math and science inquiry themselves, to engage in the curiosity and innovative thinking of young children, and become immersed in their new concept of teaching through experiencing children's learning.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
It [this text] gives one of the best theoretical explanations of how young children think. It is easy to read and has lots of science and math ideas ready to use in your classroom.

This research-based text, containing practical methods to guide and support professional decisions, will provide students with many valuable opportunities to support inquiry-based learning in the areas of math, science, and technology.

The greatest strength [of this text] is the author's philosophy on how teachers should plan and also how children best learn…through active exploration and at their own pace…giving children choices and teaching them how to teach themselves.
