Writing for practicing teachers and students of education, Schwartz (emerita, elementary and early childhood education, City U. of New York) offers her thoughts on math education in preprimary and primary settings. Coverage of game design for the development of computation, shape and space geometry, and measurement skills is followed by discussion of the connections between how children learn and foundational content. The author then turns to issues of instructional decisions in conducting assessments and in the nature of teacher-children communication; time-management tools and the integration of mathematics with science and social studies; the meaningful use of mathematics in classroom routines; connections between the different levels of analysis in the preceding material.
