Description

Maths Sequences for the Early Years features original learning sequences designed specifically for teachers to use with students in Foundation to Year 2 (ages 5 to 8) and aligned with the content strands of the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics. The learning sequences focus on problem-solving as the ‘beginning’ of learning and understanding – problem-solving leads to reasoning, then builds understanding, and develops fluency through application.

Each sequence includes age-appropriate tasks with curriculum links, necessary language, readily available materials and resources, tips for launching the tasks and consolidating the learning, and suggestions for assessment.
