Developing a Framework for the Selection of Picture Books to Promote Early Mathematical Development
Marston, Jennifer
Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (33rd, Freemantle, Western Australia, Jul 3-7, 2010)
The purpose of this paper is to describe the development of a framework to facilitate the selection and evaluation of picture books that may be useful in promoting and developing mathematical concepts in young children. Three types of mathematical picture books were initially recognised with intercoder reliability of 0.92. Seven categories were identified in the framework: Mathematical content; Curriculum content, policies, and principles; Integration of mathematics content; Mathematical meaning; Mathematical problem solving and reasoning; Affordance for mathematics learning; and Pedagogical implementation. (Contains 1 table.) [For the complete proceedings, "Shaping the Future of Mathematics Education.
