‘A wonderful book, packed with practical ideas and activities to help all students love maths.’
'What a super book! It is absolutely packed with practical ideas and activities to help you love maths, and love teaching and/or learning it. It certainly helps to develop an enthusiasm for a subject most adults tend to say "I'm no good at..."'
This is an informative read for anyone who is interested in why mathematics is so essential in the early years. Although the book ranges from
0-8 years it includes a huge amount of information relating to early years and is a must-read for any graduate or leader in an early years role.
This is a well-structured book, which includes aspects of theory and pedagogy in section 1 and more practical aspects related to maths concepts in section 2. This makes the content of the book easily accessible for the students and gives a comprehensive overview of the issues and aspects of maths in the early years.
This is an excellent resource for any aspiring or current practitioner working with children aged 0 - 8. It is full of key ideas to support practitioners in developing mathematics with the youngest minds in research-informed ways.
My students have loved this text book and it is a race to get hold of it. Many have purchased this textbook as it is so accessible and well organised. Students of Early Childhood and Primary have found this textbook easy to use and beneficial to their practice.
An excellent publication which supports students understanding of why it is so important to engage young children in their development of mathematics skills. Additionally providing numerous practical ideas to engage children and staff.
This text is very insightful and will be used particularly on our Early Childhood Education with QTS course. It is so nice to have a text that specifically focuses on this age group.
This book enhanced our teaching and learning for level 4, 5 and is being adopted for all of our 3 year BA course.
The book informs the different mathematical approaches to learning
An informative publication, which explores activities and notions of developing mathematics in the early years. Insightful for students on Diploma programmes and on the Foundation Degree to develop the understanding of learning concepts and maths skills.
very interesting book in the way it talks about the delivery of mathematics within the early years. It also gives some great activities that can take place within the settings linking all areas of the EYFS.
great book - I've recommended it to many students undertaking their dissertation on children's understandings of mathematics
Good background reading for students in early years
compared with other texts available I found this harder to use.
A comprehensive work on a subject that many EY practitioners find challenging. Helpful and engaging.
This book is largely based around the 2-6 age range but does cover some aspects from younger and older. It has some lovely case studies and I really like the images to support them. The chapter choices are well thought out and highly relevant.
Excellent for students
Good book relevant for the FD students studying Primary Ed
Since receiving the book only several students have actually used it in relation to their work based projects. It has been well received and has inspired new activity as well as informing level 4 and 5 students more about maths. I will continue to recommend the book for the forthcoming academic year.
While I felt that the book was interesting, it didn't really contain anything I felt was new, or hadn't been published elsewhere. I quite liked the format of the book, so asked our library to buy a couple of copies, but didn't recommend that the students bought copies.
This title is also available on SAGE Knowledge, the ultimate social sciences online library. If your library doesn’t have access, ask your librarian to start a trial.
