Gallery 1 guides you through the range of marks and young children's development of written number and early 'written' calculations (examples from Worthington & Carruthers, 2003)

In Gallery 2 and 3 we showcase examples from teachers who are exploring children's mathematical graphics in their settings and schools. The teachers tell their own stories and provide short case-studies that may provide you with valuable entry points to mathematical graphics in your setting.

Gallery 4 showcases numerous examples of children's mathematical graphics: many of these are explored in more detail in Childrenís Mathematics: Making Marks, Making Meaning

Gallery 5 and 6: showcases numerous recent examples of graphicacy and children's mathematical graphics, from a wide range of early childhood settings These lovely new examples are explored in more detail in our second book, Carruthers, E. and Worthington, M. (2011) Understanding Children's Mathematical Graphics: Beginnings in Play. Maidenhead: Open University Press.
