The simple, concrete mapping of the sequence of how children develop math concepts and skills makes learning, understanding, and implementing the ideas an easy task. The visuals to help explain the concepts are essential as well.
Our latest book Growing Mathematical Minds bridges research and practice. We translate research on early mathematics from developmental psychology into terms that are meaningful to teachers and readily applicable in early childhood classrooms.
Growing Mathematical Minds is a remarkable, lucid, and inviting introduction to early math education. The book truly helps both researchers and teachers to bridge the sometimes considerable gap between theory and practice.
This groundbreaking book looks at the development of mathematical thinking in infants and toddlers, with an emphasis on the earliest stage, from zero to three, when mathematical thinking and problem solving first emerge as natural instincts.
In Precursor Math Concepts, scholars/practitioners Hynes-Berry, Chen, and Abel walk us hand-in-hand down a beautiful path to see, support, and nurture young children from birth in the wonders and foundations of mathematics. The journey through their four pillars, from attribute to comparison to change to pattern, has relevance beyond mathematics in creating the beginnings of a more coherent conceptual world view.
