Mathematics for Young Minds Beginning Processes shows that the foundation for many mathematical concepts is the cluster of activities that are referred to as “mathematical processes”. This book actively involves children in these initial reasoning processes. There are five beginning processes at the core of early childhood mathematics (identifying and describing attributes, matching, sorting, comparing, and ordering). These processes, together with the five content strands, are developed as children strengthen their abilities to represent, reason, communicate, problem solve, and connect mathematical ideas.
Beginning Processes includes:
Individual, small-group, and whole-class activities
