Abstract

The Pattern and Structure Mathematical Awareness Program (PASMAP) is a network of related learning experiences developed for children in the first three years of formal schooling (Foundation to Year 2). It is based on research evidence that the foundation of mathematical development is an awareness of mathematical pattern and structure, and that engaging children in exploring core patterns and their structure leads to an improvement in general mathematical understanding.PASMAP focuses on developing childrens awareness of the patterns and structures that underlie the concepts and processes common to all the early Australian Curriculum: Mathematics strands.PASMAP Book One is primarily intended for children in Foundation and Year 1.
