In our Idea Library we have hundreds of foundational math resources that reflect our Big Ideas and Whole Teacher Approach to teacher development.
Watch math activities that bring the Big Ideas to life in early childhood classrooms
Watch how children naturally explore mathematics through play and how teachers can mathematize the fun they have every day
Professional Development Services and Events
The best way to improve classroom instruction is to change what teachers believe and do — not just what they know. It’s the “Whole Teacher Approach” to professional development. The Whole Teacher Approach recognizes that the greatest impact comes by supporting all aspects of a teacher’s growth and development, including her attitudes, knowledge, and practice.
We partner with schools, school districts, and organizations to provide a range of professional development services about early math. Our Summer Institutes and other public events welcome any early childhood professional who desires an in-depth learning experience.
国产偷拍视频 Sets are basic to children’s thinking and learning. They are also basic to our number system.
国产偷拍视频 Number sense is the ability to understand the quantity of a set and the name associated with that quantity.
Measurement is any process that produces a quantitative description of an attribute, such as length, circumference, weight, temperature, volume, or number. Measurement is an essentially mathematical procedure that we apply in many different contexts.
Our research focuses on understanding teacher development in early mathematics: what does it look like? how is it likely to occur over time? how can it best be supported? what is its effect on children’s math learning?
To study these questions, we refer to the Whole Teacher Approach, a framework that informs our professional development (PD). Just as the Whole Child Approach–familiar to many in the early childhood field–directs teachers’ energy toward not only children’s cognitive development but also their social/emotional and physical development, the Whole Teacher Approach urges broader, wholistic attention given to teachers as part of PD.
