Compendium for Research in Mathematics Education eChapter 13 Early Number and Operations: Whole Numbers (Download)
Children’s early learning about whole numbers and operations sets the stage for their later mathematical success. Baroody and Purpura summarize how and why informal mathematical knowledge provides a foundation for learning the formal mathematics taught in school. They illustrate the key role of early number sense for later numeracy and fluency by detailing a learning trajectory for the meaningful memorization of basic, whole number, addition and subtraction combinations.
