"Pattern is less a topic of mathematics than a defining quality of mathematics itself. Mathematics 'makes sense' because its patterns allow us to generate our understanding from one situation to another. Children who expect mathematics to 'make sense' look for patterns" Erikson Institute's Early Math Collaborative
This project will equip you to identify, understand, observe and trial the key features involved in designing effective practice for Early Years mathematics, ready to share and develop back in your own setting/school.
Dr Sue Gifford from Roehampton University
As this is a working group, participants are expected to develop their own practice, work closely with their co-participant and keep a reflective journal.
