Welcome to your CM Network E-bulletin

Carruthers, E. and Worthington, M. (2011) Understanding Children’s Mathematical Graphics: Beginnings in Play. Maidenhead: Open University Press.

Our second book is now out. We believe that it highlights the power of rich experiences of play, demonstrating the significance of pretence and imagination in early childhood education.

It reveals that where learning cultures support and value graphicacy, young children’s communications thorough their own drawings, writing, maps and their mathematical graphics support their thinking and meaning making.

We hope that readers will be as delighted as we were to read all the wonderful examples of children's mathematical thinking from teachers and practitioners. Maulfry, Editor.

Just Out! Worthington, M. (2011) 'Young Mathematicians: Global learners’ in E. Murphy (Ed.) Welcoming Linguistic and Cultural Diversity in Early Childhood Classrooms. Bristol: Multi-lingual Matters.
