Overview This readable, easy-to-understand book focuses on the developmental sequence of mathematics for young children and its integration with other parts of the curriculum. For each math concept presented, early childhood educators learn how it can be incorporated into music and movement, language and visual arts, science, and social studies for children from birth through age eight. Problem solving is promoted as the major means for constructing concepts with a balance of naturalistic, informal, and structured activities. The content is compatible with national standards and guidelines, providing the tools needed to prepare children to meet these standards. Each concept unit contains assessment, instructional, and evaluation strategies that can be put to use immediately. Additional resources include active approaches to mathematics, resources for establishing learning centers, guidance on parental involvement, lists of children's books with math concepts, and related websites.
