MATH AND SCIENCE FOR YOUNG CHILDREN, 6th Edition is a unique text that focuses on the integration of math and science along with the other important areas of child development during the crucial birth-through-eight age range. It also carefully addresses the ever-changing and important national standards: The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), National Council of Teachers of Math (NCTM), National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), and the National Research Council (NRC). Both math and science are presented from a common conceptual framework, and problem solving is emphasized as the major means for constructing concepts. The systematic approach of the book promotes developmentally appropriate assessment through observation, documentation of records, audio and video use, performance evaluations, and student portfolios. This text covers the use of literature and the promotion of the written language with an emphasis on dramatic play, and provides information regarding materials and resources as well as parent involvement. With the units developed sequentially from pre-kindergarten to primary level, the book is easy and logical to follow.
