Young Mathematicians at Work Series

In their Young Mathematicians at Work series, Catherine Twomey Fosnot, Maarten Dolk, and Bill Jacob describe an innovative approach to mathematics instruction where teachers help young children construct a deep understanding of numeracy and operations in a math workshop environment that supports the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice.

The hallmarks of their approach include:

  • Supporting children as they construct mathematical strategies and big ideas
  • Creating realistic contexts and mathematical models that develop children’s capacity to mathematize their world
