Developing Deep Mathematical
Learning in Early Years
(Language in Early Years)
The importance of language as an indicator of a child’s educational success has been long established by ongoing language-based projects. This work group seeks to build on some of the research around the effective use of language to support practitioners with establishing effective mathematical discourse.
This Work Group will focus on the development of mathematical language, identifying best practice in this aspect by promoting a variety in language use and how language structures can be utilised to elicit deeper mathematical thinking.
