Mathematics in Nursery Education

Mathematics in Nursery Education

by Ann Montague - Smith (Author)


Covering the mathematics needed to teach the Early Learning Goals, this text has been updated to include new research findings as well as new topics, for example, using number lines with young children. The topics of counting, numbers (including early addition and subtraction), pattern, measures and shape and space are covered in detail. Each chapter contains suggestions for key questions to ask in order to encourage children to discuss their mathematics and to demonstrate what they know and understand. There are sections on developing problem-solving skills, working with parents and other adults in the nursery setting, as well as detailed charts giving ideas for activities.
