Clements, Douglas H.; Fuson, Karen C.; Sarama, Julie – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2017
Teachers are on the front line in any educational controversy. Increasingly, some bloggers, newspaper articles, and other media have criticized the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) (CCSSI 2010) as being inappropriate for children in kindergarten and first grade. However, both research and expert practice reveal that children are…
