This book is so winningly presented, with thoughts about mathematical literacy that are so seldom stated . . .
Living and Learning Mathematics brings us into the world of the six-year-old and shows us the kinds of strategies young children are capable of devising when they solve mathematical problems. The children investigate the many uses of mathematics—they create their own stories, discuss their own strategies, invent their own algorithms, and assemble their own numerical information. Together they measure plants, classify dinosaurs, count new and missing teeth. Together they help to shape the curriculum, letting their own interests, questions, and observations guide their mathematical discoveries. And together they work to create an environment that best supports mathematical literacy.
