Teaching and Learning Early Number by Ian Thompson
Book Description"This richly varied text offers generous support for every aspect of the teacher's role, while constantly reminding us that mathematical activity is not a de-contextualised skill that children possess, but part of their identity, their way of being in the world, engaged with the world, energetically - and playfully - trying to make sense of it." Mary Jane Drummond, formerly of the Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge, UK Teaching and Learning Early Number is a bestselling guide for all trainee and practising Early Years teachers and classroom assistants. It provides an accessible guide to a wide range of research evidence about the teaching and learning of early number. Major changes in the primary mathematics curriculum over the last decade - such as the National Numeracy Strategy, the Primary National Strategy, the Early Years Foundation Stage and the Williams Review - have greatly influenced the structure of this new edition. The book includes: A new introductory chapter to set the scene Six further new chapters - including Mathematics through play, Children's mathematical graphics and Interview-based assessment of early number knowledge Six completely re-written chapters and two updated chapters A new concluding chapter looking to the futureThe chapters can be read in a standalone fashion and many are cross referenced to other parts of the book where specific ideas are dealt with in a different manner. Issues addressed include: new research on the complex process of counting and on children's written mathematical marks; counting in the home environment and play in the school setting; the importance of mathematical representations and of ICT in children's understanding of number; errors and misconceptions and the assessment of children's number knowledge.
