From page 121...
... For our purposes, we define the core mathematical ideas as those that are mathematically central and coherent, consistent with the thinking of children who have had adequate mathematical experiences, and generative of future learning. Thus, they are foundational mathematically and developmentally.
From page 122...
... They concern equity, programs, teaching, teachers and their development, assessment, appropriate mathematics for young children, and broader efforts to inform stakeholders and encourage collaboration in early childhood education and addressing the need for age/ grade level standards. That report grouped the mathematics content for early childhood into four topic areas: number and operations, geometry, measurement, and algebra, patterns, and data analysis.
From page 123...
... In addition to the three focal points at each grade level, Curriculum Focal Points describes connections, which consist of related content, including contexts and material to receive continuing development from previous grade levels. At pre-K, the connections concern data analysis, number and operations, and algebra.
From page 124...
... Children require significant amounts of time to develop the foundational mathematical skills and understandings they have the desire and potential to learn and that they will need for success at school. Although some children have a sufficiently enriched home environment and enough mathematically focused interactions with family members so that they develop many of the necessary foundational mathematical understandings and skills at home, others do not.
From page 125...
... The time spent on number and operations and on geometry and measurement can also include connections to data analysis and patterns, as listed in Curriculum Focal Points and discussed in the chapters of Part II. The kind of learning involved in various number and operation components and in various aspects of geometry and measurement is different, as we describe.
