Mathematics Resources for Tertiary Early Childhood Students

We use maths in some way every day, whether it be making breakfast (measuring), driving to work (spatial awareness) or buying a coffee (using money).

Even though many educators and parents attempt to provide good mathematics experiences there is still a high level of anxiety about the teaching and learning of mathematics. These feelings can become obstacles to the provision of a rich maths program in early childhood. Another problem that inhibits educators is the lack of awareness of what to teach in the early years and unfamiliarity of the particular concepts that can be introduced from an early age.

The titles listed in this category address these issues by providing sound advice and widen the narrow view that maths for young children is just about numbers and shapes.
