Mathematical Development in Young Children: Exploring Notations (Ways of Knowing in Science and Mathematics)by Barbara M. Brizuela
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
Using data from interviews and in-depth conversations with children from five to nine years of age, Brizuela's (education, Tufts U.) study examines how children understand and learn mathematical notations in their development as mathematics learners. Each chapter focuses on a different notational system—written numbers, commas and periods, fractions, data tables, number lines, graphs, and student-invented systems drawing from established conventions. The chapters are organized chronologically in terms of the ages of the children described in each chapter, so the resulting order is by both increasing age of the children and increasing complexity of the mathematical content.
