The Mathematics for Young Minds Full Set is a collection of 6 teacher instruction activity books for Pre-Kindergarten through 1st grade covering the following topics:
Patterns in Algebra
Data and Chance
Space and Shape
Each book in the set begins by discussing the educational theory of each topic area.
After breaking-down the topic area into very simple terms, the easy-to-follow instructions guide teachers through the activities they can use to transform the theory that they’ve just learned into 60 practical classroom activities for the early childhood classroom.
The series provides activities that are rich in concrete materials and language to expand and deepen conceptual knowledge.
These activities, which include backline masters, help young children in the initial reasoning processes of identifying and describing attributes, matching, sorting, comparing, measurement, and ordering.
Activities provide a balance between a child-focused and a teacher-guided learning experience.
