Jan de Lange walks through a few educational math games that are available online. With degrees of difficulty bridging from Pre-K through 8th grade, these games extend the idea of learning trajectories.
Jan de Lange is the founder and director of Jonge Ouder Academie (Young Parents Academy), an institute for parents of children ages 3-7 that facilitates learning at home, complementary to learning at school. He is also an Emeritus Professor at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands and a past chairman and director of the Freudenthal Institute.
The Early Math Collaborative, supported by the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, held international symposia in 2009 and 2010. The two events brought experts from around the world to share approaches to early mathematics education with teachers, administrators, policy-makers, and other education professionals. The goal was to generate globally-informed ideas and recommendations for improving math instruction in the early childhood classroom. In breakout discussions and plenary sessions, participants brainstormed ideas, identified issues, and recommended actions.
