Curtis concluded that adults who modelled curious, questioning behaviour encouraged this in children, suggesting that modelling attitudes may be as important as teaching strategies. Useful resources Construction - finding shapes which fit together or balance Pattern-making - creating a rule to create a repeating pattern Shape pictures - selecting shapes with properties to represent something Puzzles - finding ways of fitting shapes to fit a puzzle Role-play areas — working out how much to pay in a shop Measuring tools — finding out how different kinds of scales work Nesting, posting, ordering — especially if they are not obvious Robots - e.
To build our framework, we draw on several sources. DiBiase Eds. Relational language and the development of relational mapping. Furthermore, we describe what we view as important findings concerning children's acquisition of mathematical concepts, by developing the idea of number sense. For children to work successfully, they need to feel confident about talking through concepts and making mistakes along the way. Page 68 Share Cite. Brent Davis Professor.
