ab: From the preface: The focus of this book is standards-based mathematics
education in preschool and kindergarten. Designed to link theory and
research to effective pedagogical practice, the book specifically
targets the development of mathematical reasoning in young children and
guides teachers in creating and implementing curriculum and
instructional procedures to maximize conceptual understanding\dots This
book is designed to move prospective and practicing teachers from a
developmental understanding of each mathematics content standard
through the creation, implementation, and assessment of curriculum\dots
After describing the typical developmental trajectory of key
mathematical concepts, it addresses curriculum accommodations and
instructional strategies to support children with disabilities.
Universal design for learning is an important topic addressed
throughout the book. The book has eight chapters: Foundations for
mathematical development; Developing number sense; Developing concepts
about arithmetic operations; Developing algebra concepts; Developing
geometry concepts; Developing deasurement concepts; Developing concepts
about data analysis and probability; Integrating curricula to meet
mathematics goals: putting it all together.
