MATH AND SCIENCE FOR YOUNG CHILDREN, 6th Edition is a unique text that focuses on the integration of math and science along with the other important areas of child development during the crucial birth-through-eight age range. It also carefully addresses the ever-changing and important national standards: The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), National Council of Teachers of Math (NCTM), National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), and the National Research Council (NRC). Both math and science are presented from a common conceptual framework, and problem solving is emphasized as the major means for constructing concepts. The systematic approach of the book promotes developmentally appropriate assessment through observation, documentation of records, audio and video use, performance evaluations, and student portfolios. This text covers the use of literature and the promotion of the written language with an emphasis on dramatic play, and provides information regarding materials and resources as well as parent involvement. With the units developed sequentially from pre-kindergarten to primary level, the book is easy and logical to follow.

Expectations for early learning are very different than they were even as recently as a decade ago. With increased recognition of the intellectual capacities of young children, as well as a growing understanding of how these capacities develop and can be fostered, has come a growing recognition that early childhood education, in both formal and informal settings, may not be helping all children maximize their cognitive capacities. Mathematical and Scientific Development in Early Childhood explores the research in cognition and developmental psychology that sheds light on children's capacity to learn mathematical and scientific ideas. This summary report of the discussions and presentations at the workshop is designed to frame the issues relevant to advancing research useful to the development of research-based curricula for mathematics and science for young children.

This first edition gives educators a detailed view of how children ages three to six learn, based on theories of Piaget, Vygotsky and social constructivist learning. It examines how children respond in the steps of inquiry and how educators can develop skills to foster children's active exploration in each step. Through an array of exploratory curriculum styles in math and science, including Inquiry Topics, students will develop strong skills in selecting, framing, and expanding curriculum for the preschool and kindergarten children teach. Educators also will become familiar with introducing an array of technology to enhance inquiry in the classroom. Benefits: * Anecdotes and straightforward information enable students to easily grasp theoretical concepts Discussions of family, culture and societal issues promote understanding of children's approach to thinking and learning Presentation of current early childhood theory enables its integration into math and science curriculum development Discussion of technology in the early childhood classroom gives students a knowledge base of appropriate and innovative technology uses Instructor's manual offers in-class learning activities and hands-on laboratory experiences on the process and topics of the three subjects Curriculum Inquiry Topics in math and science encourage their integration into the students' own teaching * Discussions of family, culture and societal issues promote understanding of children's approach to thinking and learning * Presentation of current early childhood theory enables its integration into math and science curriculum development * Discussion of technology in the early childhood classroom gives students a knowledge base of appropriate and innovative technology uses * Curriculum Inquiry Topics in math and science encourage their integration into the students' own teaching

EXPERIENCES IN MATH FOR YOUNG CHILDREN, 6th Edition, focuses on the developmental sequence of mathematics for young children and its integration with other content areas. For each mathematics concept presented, Charlesworth provides a picture of how the concept might be incorporated into music and movement, language arts, visual arts, science, and social studies for children from birth through age eight. Early education students learn about problem solving as the major means for constructing concepts with a balance of naturalistic, informal, and structured activities. Students are also prepared to put concepts into action with the assessment, instructional, and evaluation strategies provided in each unit. Finally, the text provides specific information about active approaches to mathematics, materials and resources for setting up learning centers, guidance on parental involvement, and Internet resources.

Encourage young investigators to feel, listen, smell, taste, and see their way to discovery by seamlessly infusing math and science throughout the school day! As you incorporate all five senses into learning experiences, you will give little innovators the opportunity to observe and explore the world around them. The activities in Hands-On Science and Math: Fun, Fascinating Activities for Young Children will help you plan engaging science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) lessons that will excite children and foster their critical thinking. Children can experience the thrill of scientific inquiry through simple experiments. Designed to work with easy-to-find materials, the Hands-On Science and Math activities are inexpensive and uncomplicated, yet they lay the groundwork for understanding more complex STEM concepts later on.

This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. Integrating Math and Science in Early Childhood Classrooms Through Big Ideas offers teachers a way to think about the future classroom and to meet the needs of children who come to into it with diverse experience, knowledge, and abilities. “Change how we think about math and science for young children,” the authors say in their Preface. “Instead of separating the disciplines, planning lessons and topics and projects aimed at math OR science content, let’s look at the world the way the child does. Children think in terms of big ideas.” In this unique book, the authors focus on big ideas—like patterns, transformation, movement, balance, and relationships—as a way to think about content, and they integrate science and mathematics through these big ideas, rather than linking them topically. The book looks at why it is important to think about thinking, introduces assessment early to help the teacher plan for assessment before teaching even begins, and sets up an environment that will support the construction of the big ideas that integrate math and science. Real-life scenarios provide invaluable insights into the teacher’s thinking and planning, and each chapter includes two modules to be used for in-depth exploration of different aspects of the big ideas. It’s a unique exploration of thinking and learning.

Mathematik versteht man oder eben nicht. Der eine ist dafür natürlich begabt, dem anderen bleibt dieses Fach für immer ein Rätsel. Stimmt nicht, sagt nun Barbara Oakley und zeigt mit ihrem Buch, dass wirklich jeder ein Gespür für Zahlen hat. Mathematik braucht nämlich nicht nur analytisches Denken, sondern auch den kreativen Geist. Denn noch mehr als um Formeln geht es um die Freiheit, einen der vielen möglichen Lösungsansätze zu finden. Der Weg ist das Ziel. Und wie man zum richtigen Ergebnis kommt, ist eine Kunst, die man entwickeln, entdecken und in sich wecken kann. Die Autorin vermittelt eine Vielfalt an Techniken und Werkzeugen, die das Verständnis von Mathematik und Naturwissenschaft grundlegend verbessern. (K)ein Gespür für Zahlen nimmt Ihnen — vor allem wenn Sie sich in Schule, Uni oder Beruf mathematisch oder naturwissenschaftlich beweisen müssen — nicht nur die Grundangst, sondern stärkt Ihren Mut, Ihren mathematischen Fähigkeiten zu vertrauen. So macht Mathe Spaß!

Curriculum needs to be based on the strengths and needs of children. This information is gathered through careful observation and documentation and is one of the cornerstones of curriculum development. The purpose of this text is to take curriculum development to another level: to fill the gap between theory and practice. This text will help students to look at curriculum from the perspective of the child and to understand how that perspective is linked to learning and theory. This book is a documentation of individuals and groups of children learning over time. Each curriculum discussion starts with the real experiences that children have had. From these experiences, pertinent theory is woven in, explained and expanded.
