Key aspects of early number learning: Reshaping numeracy for the 21st century

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

    Abstract

    This chapter describes some key aspects of early number learning critical to the development of number sense and mental computation, and mathematics generally: counting and estimation, grouping and partitioning, base ten, and arithmetical strategies. These aspects can be seen as interrelated parts of a complex framework of number ideas and relationships. Several classroom examples will be used to illustrate these aspects and how children can use a range of strategies in interrelated ways. A Learning Framework in Number (LFIN) will exemplify a structured way of mapping the development of children's early numerical strategies (NSW Department of Education & Training, 1998).
