14995.jpgA practical new book, copublished by NCTM and Teachers College Press, helps preservice and in-service teachers recognize the mathematical learning that occurs during play, develop strategies for mathematizing that play, and design formal lessons that make connections between mathematics and play. Exploring Mathematics through Play in the Early Childhood Classroom provides examples that illustrate how play offers children opportunities to solve non-routine problems and demonstrate a variety of mathematical ways of thinking—such as perseverance and attention to precision.
