Young children recording mathematically AIMS of the course: To explore ways to enable and encourage young children to make mathematical recordings in and through their play. To explore the current thinking about the importance

of mathematical graphics as a tool for childrens thinking. To examine the stages of development in childrens mathematical recordings and graphics. How are your children encouraged to record or mark make

mathematically just now? Grids Grids and tables? Martin Hughes Tins game

Mark Making: why is it important? Through their marks, children are communicating their ideas, expressing their feelings, developing their imagination and creativity, and testing their hypotheses about the world. These opportunities for making thinking visible are fundamental to childrens learning and development should be the entitlement of every child.
