Mathematics is an art and a science, an art of articulating and questioning, science of discovery, uncovering and persisting; therefore we would be suppressing children’s intellectual freedom if we were to shunt their questions and fascinations.

Bristol Early Years research in this area has resulted in the promotion of best mathematics teaching practices in Early Years. We have explored, with our partner settings, the importance of how children’s mathematical competencies impact upon mathematical learning and teaching throughout their school careers. We are looking at how to improve priorities that enhance mathematics learning, what helps and hinders effective mathematics teaching and how teacher attitudes to mathematics affect learning.Mathematics is an art and a science, an art of articulating and questioning, science of discovery, uncovering and persisting; therefore we would be suppressing children’s intellectual freedom if we were to shunt their questions and fascinations.

We have a wealth of information on this website to support Early Years mathematics practitioners, including ideas for further reading (both practitioner and child focussed), CPD courses and details of current research projects.  Please use the links below to view these pages.
