We call 10 a "friendly" number, a landmark, a benchmark. Whatever you call it, 10 is really big in early math, and it's really big to the Collaborative.
The five founding members of the Collaborative reflect on the past ten years of learning and maintaining a rich collaborative spirit.
I’m writing today to say thank you. Because of you, the Early Math Collaborative has been around for 10 years now.
Project working with ages 0-3 in Chicago expands, helping us learn more about earliest foundations of math learning.
The sessions included an overview of foundational math concepts as well as hands-on early math games and activities for the classroom.
The Early Math Collaborative went to the White House to take part in the conversation about how to improve early STEM learning in the United States.
For three years the Collaborative has been partnering with Chicago Public Schools and Depaul University as a network of support to teachers.
For years the Collaborative has been expanding their efforts. In 2015 one such effort took the team to Hawaii to explore such concepts as sets and operations.
On November 18th-21st, 2015 instructors Dr. Hynes-Berry and Dr. Chen attended the annual national conference, presenting on the precursor concepts of math for babies and infants three-years-old and younger.
The Collaborative received a four-year $3 million grant from the National Science Foundation, funding a new project that aims to improve early mathematics learning in Head Start classrooms across Chicago. This new program intends to help prepare teachers and teacher assistants to provide effective, intentional math instruction.
