The past decade of research on early childhood learning in mathematics has resulted in exciting developments in instruction and assessment. This session will highlight key research findings that suggest we need to increase our expectations of mathematics learning for young. The findings will be compared to Texas Pre-K Standards and specific examples of how to structure early childhood experiences to optimize mathematics learning will be illustrated.
