Count Me In Too
Here is an interesting site that i somehow stumbled upon…it is an interactive website based out of New South Wales. In the words of the website itself, it is based on a professional development program developed to support the effective teaching of mathematics in years K-6. The program melds findings from research about how children learn mathematics, with research on effective professional development. It has three major components:
- A theory of number development based on research from around the world and described in a learning framework;
- An individualised Schedule for Early Number Assessment used by teachers to place each child at a point within this framework; and
- A professional development program designed to assist teachers better understand how children learn arithmetic.
