Product Description

Edited by Juanita V. Copley
Copublished with the National Association for the Education of Young Children

This thought-provoking material shows that although children think differently from adults and although children construct their own informal mathematics, they are capable of surprisingly complex forms of mathematical thinking and learning. The book presents historical, theoretical, and social pictures of early childhood mathematics; discusses the mathematics content essential to the young child's understanding; and zooms in on mathematics for the young child from the panoramic view of mathematics for everyone.
