Mathematizing: An Emergent Math Curriculum Approach for Young Children
Rosales, Allen C.
Based on years of research with early childhood teachers, author Allen Rosales provides an approach to create an emergent math curriculum that integrates children's interests with math concepts. The mathematizing approach is different from traditional math curriculums, as it immerses children in a process that is designed to develop their understanding of math concepts in real life contexts. This approach has helped hundreds of teachers engage children in meaningful and purposeful interactions that have led to increased math, language, and inquiry skills. "Mathematizing" makes learning math seem like child's play. . . . and it is!
