Description

Numeracy in Early Childhood covers all the topics which are important for students studying to become early childhood practitioners. This Australian text focuses on using everyday language and objects, and predominantly play-based pedagogy in teaching, and provides practical models and guides to facilitate numeracy education. By framing a subject such as mathematics within a sociocultural perspective, the book shows how these everyday interactions can shape young children's mathematical thinking.
