shows that children formulate extraordinarily interesting
and complex mathematical ideas, even at very young ages. Private Universe Project in Mathematics demonstrates and honors
the power and sophistication of these ideas, and explores
how mathematics teaching can be structured to resonate with
children's sophisticated thinking. When we encourage the invention
of children's mathematical ideas, we turn them on to math,
and their achievement improves!
Private Universe Project in Mathematics, a
series of six K12 teacher video workshops (with
an additional 7th workshop for those seeking graduate credit)
and this companion interactive Web site.
