Responding to their recent research on how children learn mathematics, the authors have revised this bestselling textbook to provide practical advice on what works and what should be avoided when teaching second graders. This volume features important revisions to their groundbreaking program based on Piaget’s theory that children learn arithmetic by constructing it from the inside, through their own natural ability to think.

Critical Acclaim for the First Edition!
“The book is useful for practicing educators, administrators, and curriculum directors, as well as students of early childhood, cognitive development and mathematics methods.”
“The clear narrative writing style and frequent illustrations make the book easy to read and understand…a useful resource for any primary grade teacher and curriculum specialist.”
“An encouraging foray into the future of educational research and practice. Although written for teachers, administrators, curriculum developers, and evaluators, Young Children Continue to Reinvent Arithmetic would also be of interest to researchers and psychologists.”
