Eric.ed.gov – Teachers Nurturing Math-Talented Young Children.

eric.ed.gov har udgivet:

This book is an outgrowth of a 2-year study of 284 children discovered during preschool or kindergarten to be advanced in mathematics. In addition to psychometric and cognitive testing conducted at the beginning, middle, and end of the study, half of the children attended biweekly interventions designed to enrich their experience with mathematics. Results found the children remained advanced in math over the 2-year period, their spatial reasoning related more closely to their math reasoning than did their verbal reasoning, and the math scores of the boys started and remained higher than those of the girls. The intervention proved effective in enhancing mathematical reasoning. The book discusses ways of identifying very young math-advanced children as well as a variety of educational strategies to meet their needs. Its primary emphasis is on creating an open-ended approach to teaching mathematics that provides an opportunity for children at different levels of advancement and different personal styles to engage with mathematical challenges in a playful way, to conceptualize math broadly, to pose problems, and to make sense of the mathematical system. Appendices include a questionnaire for parents, jobcards and other activities, annotated bibliography, and recommendations for the classroom. (Contains 84 references.) (CR)

Jeg er ansat som adjunkt hos Læreruddannelsen i Jelling, hvor jeg underviser i matematik, specialiseringsmodulet teknologiforståelse, praktik m.m. Jeg har tidligere været ansat som pædagogisk konsulent i matematik og tysk hos UCL ved Center for Undervisningsmidler (CFU) i Vejle og lærer i udskolingen (7.-9. klasse) på Lyshøjskolen i Kolding. Jeg er ejer af og driver bl.a. hjemmesiderne www.lærklokken.dk og www.iundervisning.dk, ggbkursus.dk og er tidligere fagredaktør på matematik på emu.dk. Jeg går ind for, at læring skal være let tilgængelig og i størst mulig omfang gratis at benytte.
