It is important for teachers to incorporate mathematics into the daily curriculum to ensure young children gain the foundational skills for later success in math. In this collection of articles from NAEYC's journal Young Children, teachers of children from infancy through age 8 will learn how to help children develop, construct, use, and reflect on their mathematical understandings. Articles offer ways to provide in-depth, engaging learning experiences focusing on key math concept areas: number and operations, geometry, measurement, and data analysis. The book provides a comprehensive resource list and a professional development guide with questions and activities to help readers reflect on current practices and incorporate new ones.
