University of Fort Hare Distance Education Project. Core Learning Areas Course: Mathematical Literacy, Mathematics and Mathematical Science. Umthamo 1: Developing and using Number Concepts

In this umthamo we explore learners' thinking about number. We have put together samples of research about how young children develop their mathematical concepts. Our aim is to enable you to have:

  • a clearer understanding of basic number concepts
  • an appreciation of how young children begin to make sense of numbers at home and in school
  • a sense of how young children develop number concepts
  • an understanding of how teachers can help their learners develop mathematical skills.
