A preschool student puts together shape blocks to make larger, more complicated shapes from memory. In doing so, she makes connections between the various configurations she is constructing.

Focus on the Child videos are taken from one-on-one interviews with individual children. The interviews are designed to elicit evidence of children’s mathematical thinking. They are not teaching episodes or formal assessments.
