Algebra for All even 6 year olds


WOW! Young children engaging in generalising and making connections with other mathematical concepts. If you doubt that this is possible then this presentation is for you!
This session will showcase the Pattern and Structure Mathematical Awareness Program (PASMAP) for children in the first 3 years of formal schooling (F- 2). The Program is based on research evidence undertaken by Joanne Mulligan and Michael Mitchelmore. It is organised as a series of learning sequences each of which consists of a number of learning experiences focused on one or more early mathematical structures. These learning sequences are grouped into multiple learning pathways showing that visualising and developing mental pictures provides the foundation for deeper learning and understanding of related and interrelated mathematical concepts.

Practical examples of the following pedagogical practices: Modelling, Representing, Visualising, Generalising and Sustaining will show how to engage young children in generalising.
