Organized in two parts, the first part describes the need for and nature of mathematics reform, discusses how young children learn, and how educators can plan and implement activities. Multi-faceted approaches to assess learning are also addressed in part one. The second part of the text focuses on mathematics topics and ways to facilitate young children's learning.
