Teaching Young Children To Think about Math.
Wakefield, Alice P.
Principal, v80 n5 p26-29 May 2001
Constructivist teachers are guided by three basic principles when teaching math to young children. They encourage students to think about their answers, conceptualize how they resolved the problem, and represent their thinking with words, pictures, or symbols. Demonstrating mathematical logic is more important than memorizing rules. (MLH)
