The Early Math Collaborative’s Jennifer McCray and Rebeca Itzkowich spoke on the June 6 edition of the Education Town Hall about the Collaborative’s approach to early mathematics instruction.

In the interview, they discuss the Early Math Collaborative’s work to address early childhood teachers’ attitudes toward math by helping them embrace mathematics instruction, as well as the Collaborative’s new book, Big Ideas of Early Mathematics: What Teachers of Young Children Need to Know.

It’s common to hear people say, “I can’t even balance my checkbook,” McCray says, “and that’s considered acceptable. But most people wouldn’t proudly announce, ‘I can’t read!'”
