Meaningful Mathematics with Young Children.
Ward, Christina D.
Dimensions of Early Childhood, v23 n2 p7-11 Win 1995
Argues that mathematics education at the preschool and primary level should emphasize child-centered, hands-on, discovery learning, rather than paper-and-pencil tasks that may be too abstract for young children. Suggests that this holistic approach to mathematics fosters concept development and higher order thinking skills on a broad level. (MDM)
