Early childhood mathematics / fifth edition
For Mathematics in Early Childhood Education courses.
This NCTM standards-based textbook, encourages the educator or future educator to create an active learning environment that fosters curiosity, confidence, and persistence in young children as they learn mathematics.
Author Susan Sperry Smith clearly presents three key ingredients for the successful acquisition of math in the early years: knowledge of important mathematical relationships, number sense, and the ability to solve problems. Through practical knowledge and applications, this ever-popular text focuses on helping teachers foster these skills and ways of thinking to build student success from year to year.
Features
• Practical knowledge and applications for new teachers include coverage of lesson planning, a blue print for planning, sample lessons with children's problem solutions, and assessment coverage that shows children's work samples.
• Gain a greater understanding of the general relationship between the English language and the language of math. The text affords teachers of young children an overview of the concepts developed during the critical language learning years, especially as related to mathematics. Featured in the Planning chapter (Chapter 2).
• Coverage of technology, integrated throughout the text, includes lesson plans using the internet and children's software.
