In 2007 Erikson launched the Early Math Collaborative (previously Early Mathematics Education Project) to increase the quality of early math education through

  • professional development of teachers, facilitators/trainers, and administrators;
  • conducting research to generate new knowledge about approaches to teacher education, teacher development, and the most effective methods of mathematics instruction for young children; and
  • providing a source for information on foundational mathematics – what it is, how it develops in children, and how best to teach it

Join coaches from the Early Math Collaborative in this three-session series that goes deeper into exploring topics in enriching mathematics education for young children.
