Young Mathematicians at Work, 1

Constructing Number Sense, Addition, and Subtraction

by Catherine Twomey Fosnot, Maarten Dolk

Young Mathematicians at Work: Constructing Number Sense, Addition, and Subtraction focuses on children ages 4–8 as they construct deep understandings of number, addition, and subtraction. The authors look at the development of big ideas and define mathematics as "mathematizing"— structuring, modeling, and interpreting the world mathematically. They show how rich contexts promote inquiry, problem solving, and construction, that let children pursue mathematical ideas.
