In this session, we will consider three different facets of mathematical connections. We will examine and reflect on connections between mathematical ideas. We will look at examples of how to connect mathematics to the broad curriculum in early education. We will also consider ways to connect mathematics to what happens in a child's world.
This session shows you how to help students do the following:
