Open Access Graduate Research Paper


Educators are continuously searching for better techniques for working with young children and establishing developmentally appropriate curricula. We have witnessed a great surge of interest in the work of Piaget, and its many implications for educating young children. His investigation into development of a number of logical, physical, and mathematical notions contains several ideas which, if suitably explored and developed, could prove valuable to educators and instructional planners (Ginsburg and Opper, p. 218). There are indications from Piagetian research, relevant to both affective and cognitive development of children, that a mathematics program for young children should be one of exploration and manipulation of physical materials.
