Analysis of children's mathematical graphics from children birth - 8 years

We analysed 700 examples of children's mathematical graphics from children in the home, nursery settings and schools. This important and in-depth analysis uncovers the development of young children’s own mathematical marks and calculations for the first time. It reveals the complexity and creativity of young children's mathematical mark-making and their astonishing ability to make meaning. Click here to read outcome of this research
