What is the
Children's Mathematics Network?
The Children’s Mathematics Network is an
not-for-profit organisation for teachers, practitioners,
students, researchers and teacher educators working with children in
the birth – 8 year age range. It is a grassroots network, with
children and teachers at its heart.
The Network focuses on
children’s mathematical graphics and the
meanings children make. You will be able to explore and share ‘written’
mathematics within the context of visual representation
including drawing; early (emergent) writing; thinking; play;
multi-modality. Our work is
based on extensive, evidence-based research with children, teachers
and families and within the context of homes, nurseries and schools. We
advocate a spirit of freedom and creativity for teachers and more
importantly, the freedom for children to explore their own meanings
in creative ways.
Our aim is to hear the voice of the
child and to support effective pedagogy for this significant aspect
of mathematics in this phase
