Kinzer, Cathy; Gerhardt, Kacie; Coca, Nicole – Early Childhood Education Journal, 2016
Kindergarteners need access to blocks as thinking tools to develop, model, test, and articulate their mathematical ideas. In the current educational landscape, resources such as blocks are being pushed to the side and being replaced by procedural worksheets and academic "seat time" in order to address standards. Mathematics research…

Purpura, David J.; Ganley, Colleen M. – Grantee Submission, 2014
Children's early mathematics skills develop in a cumulative fashion; foundational skills form a basis for the acquisition of later skills. However, non-mathematical factors such as working memory and language skills have also been linked to mathematical development at a broad level. Unfortunately, little research has been conducted to evaluate the…

Ginsburg, Herbert P.; Lee, Young-Sun; Pappas, Sandra – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2016
Formative assessment involves the gathering of information that can guide the teaching of individual or groups of children. This approach requires a sound understanding of children's thinking and learning, as well as an effective method for gaining the information. We propose that formative assessment should employ a version of clinical…
