Children's Mathematics: Making Marks, Making Meaning


Based on the authors' many years' experience in teaching children ages three to eight years and on their extensive research with children in the home, nursery and school, this resource discusses the development and range of young children's mathematical marks and visual representations. It illustrates how children make mental connections between their own early marks and subsequent abstract mathematical symbolism, and go on to develop their own written methods. 

Combining theory and practice, this acclaimed book demonstrates how children's own mathematical graphics are highly creative and reflect deep levels of thinking, and identifies this as the key to success in school mathematics and higher levels of achievement. The authors are winners of TACTYC's (2003) Jenefer Joseph Award for the Creative Arts (3 - 8), awarded for their innovative work with children on mathematical graphics.
