What are the mathematical and educational building blocks of early mathematics? What role should these building blocks play in a developmentally appropriate setting? Join two of the most preeminent early math experts in the country, Dr. Douglas Clements and Dr. Julie Sarama, as they describe research-based learning trajectories as the core of all aspects of the educational enterprise. These learning trajectories include three components: the mathematical goals, developmental progressions of children’s learning, and educational activities and teaching strategies (based on finding the mathematics in, and developing mathematics from, children’s everyday activity). This webinar will explore teachers’ learning and implementation, as well as the cognitive benefits for the children in their classrooms.
Learning outcomes (objectives): Participants will be able to:
- Describe in general terms what young children know and can learn about math.
- List gaps that threaten some children’s success.
- Informally define learning trajectories and the role they should play in early education.
All sessions are 1.5 hours long, and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
2:oo PM – 3:30 PM Eastern Time.
