Investigating Mathematics, Science and Technology in Early Childhood introduces pre-service teachers to the ways in which young children develop mathematics, science and technology understandings through everyday play and investigation.

This integrated text focuses on observing, documenting and communicating young childrens mathematics, science and technology learning in educative settings ranging from birth to eight years of age. It covers mathematics, science and technology in a range of early childhood contexts, including home, playgroup, childcare, preschool, and school.

Relevant case examples, with anecdotes from children, families and practitioners, are used appropriately to focus on the use of learning stories to illustrate childrens investigations of mathematics, science and technology concepts. The text provides explanations and examples of mathematics, science and technology concepts in order to build content knowledge for pre-service students.

In this way early childhood educators may develop appropriate language for explaining mathematics, science and technology concepts and processes so that they are able to articulate childrens understandings of these areas to families and other educators.
