Maths Is Not Dangerous--Attitudes of People Working in German Kindergarten about Mathematics in Kindergarten
Benz, Christiane
European Early Childhood Education Research Journal, v20 n2 p249-261 2012
This article deals with the results of a questionnaire survey, in which attitudes and beliefs of people working in German kindergarten about "mathematics," "teaching and learning of mathematics" and "mathematics in the early years" were evaluated. After a quantitative analysis it can be stated that a schematic view of mathematics of kindergarten educators prevailed and active and constructive learning of mathematics was highly agreed upon. The answers to the "open question" about mathematics in kindergarten and learning goals revealed a broad range. These results are used to show impacts on pre-service and in-service pre-school teacher education. (Contains 5 tables and 2 notes.)
