Children's Mathematical Thinking
A Developmental Framework for Preschool, Primary, and Special Education TeachersBook - 1987
This book provides a framework for understanding children's mathematical development and the ways in which it can go wrong. The author first summarizes the major theoretical and practical research on the development of numeration, arithmetic, and problem solving, and then details strategies and activities for encouraging specific mathematical skills, concepts, and beliefs. Particular emphasis is placed on using the children's informal knowledge of mathematics as a basis for building up to a formal understanding.
