Summary

This text focuses on the integration of mathematics and science with each other and with the other content areas for children birth through age eight. It is based on theories of Child Development and learning and is compatible with the guidelines and standards of the major national professional organizations (i.e. NAEYC, NCTM, NSTA, & AAAS). Units are arranged in a developmental sequence from preschool through primary and include appropriate assessment instructional, and evaluation strategies. Developmentally appropriate assessment is promoted through observation, recording of anecdotal records and checklists, video and audiotapes, performance evaluations and portfolios.

  • science and math standards have been updated and NAEYC recommended integrated curriculum receive greater emphasis
  • webs have been included to illustrate how mathematics can be integrated with other content area
  • integration of mathematics and science fits current directions in early childhood education
  • provides flexibility to be used in integrated course or separate mathematics and science courses
  • compatible with national standards and guidelines
  • problem solving stresses the basis for concept development suggests methods for involving parents in their children's learning
