In this unit, students will examine and analyse the mathematical learning that occurs in the youngest generation of children; infants and toddlers. Learning is subtle during this time of life and can be missed if not understood. In this unit you will explore what mathematics looks like for infants and toddlers, how this learning sets them up for their later mathematics learning, and how teachers can support infant and toddlers mathematics.
Students will have the opportunity to put their knowledge into practice during a 10-day placement with infants and toddlers.
