Embracing Math: Cultivating a Mindset for Exploring and Learning (Deanna Pecaski McLennan)
Enhance your own comfort level with math in order to develop and implement a rich math program through the lens of emergent learning while increasing children’s interest, confidence, and success in mathematics. This book provides a strong pedagogical discussion with relevant, easy-to-implement examples of how to cultivate a learning space for complex exploratory math learning without textbooks or worksheets. Be inspired to reflect upon your curriculum through a mathematical lens and to see the potential for math learning in all aspects of your program. Educators will easily relate to this collection of math-related topics told from the perspective of a teacher who was initially nervous about her ability to teach math to young children and her journey to becoming a more confident teacher of math.
